Digital Tools, Learning/Teaching Settings, Learning Approach


The tremendous digital revolution is generating, in our society, complex transformations in teaching and learning setting. This will conduct innovation in education towards a new quality. This paper presents some possible examples on how digital tools can be introduced and used to make a learning setting more effective.
