This paper articulates the knowledge built in researches development by Schlemer (1998, 2002, 2004, 2005, 2006, 2007) and the Research Group - Digital Education - GP-du UNISINOS/CNPq. These surveys theorize and discuss the relations and interactions developed in metaverse, to build the knowledge of educational practices. Thus, the data collected are systematized in a conceptual text with terms emerging from researches and grounded in theories by Castells (1999), Piaget and Inhelder (1993), Maturana and Varela (2002), and Lévy (1999) with reflections on living and living with of “citizens” present in the metaverses. This systematization contributes to the construction of pedagogical practices in an interactionist/constructivist/systemic perspective, and the understanding of new ways of thinking and constructing knowledge through the digital-virtual technologies (TDVs), chiefly the metaverses.
