It is observed that the technologies have invaded the classrooms, providing increasingly attractive teaching methods. Technologies have challenged school institutions to keep up with this new reality. In some cases, the technologies offered aim, to a certain extent, to meet some educational needs of students and soften deficiencies in classroom teaching. The arrival of digital technologies in classrooms brings great advances, but also brings many uncertainties and insecurities, giving rise to new tensions, new possibilities and new challenges. With today's technologies, the school environment can transform into a meaningful, face-to-face and digital learning environment, making students more active, motivating them to learn and search all the time. The present work aims to present the advantages and disadvantages of these digital methods, as well as to demonstrate the applicability of these technologies in the current daily life of school institutions. It also presents some important aspects about the use of technologies in the learning process, discussing how the use of virtual simulations software can contribute to the teaching of Physics. To obtain data from the students, a questionnaire with seven questions was used.
