This paper discusses GERE (Study Group on Resources for Education) members’ research trajectory in three different lines: Teaching practice and practice management, Teacher education and identity, and Support for learning and resource generation. It discusses how researchers seek to understand technology integration in the practice of distance education in Brazil, with the instrumental orchestrations lens, revealing the changes made in the didactic configurations, from the multiplicity of teachers responsible for each discipline. Teachers’ documentation is discussed in the process of resource elaboration and use and guided by design, experimentation, and reflection of the generated instrument, such as digital textbooks and mathematical games. The notion of integrating artefacts is discussed both from the perspective of collaborative learning and of instrumental meta-orchestration, a teacher education model about instrumental orchestration. Finally, thinking about the artefact as a support for learning also made us work on generating devices aimed at specific concepts such as covariation in learning functions.
