This workshop builds on part of the results of a R&D project ("Policy and Practice regarding ICT in Education: Implication for Educational Innovation and Improvement" (Ministerio de Educación y Ciencia. SEJ2007-67562. 2007-2010), whose main aim is to explore continuities and discontinuities between educational policy and school practice in the use of ICT. Our interactive presentation will turn around the difficulties and opportunities for the development of a digital culture in an institution with a heavily rooted analogical tradition made of compartmentalised times, fragmented subject matters, teachers’ centred teaching and learning models, and assessments systems based on the repetition and application. We’ll discuss with the participants on the condition need to make sure ICT that, as suggested by Järvelä (2006), can: increases authenticity and interest; build virtual communities among different schools, collaborating teams, and teachers; help to share perspectives among students with different expertise; can facilitates the use of technology-supported inquiry approaches and problem-based models for increasing learning-to-learn skills; provide innovative ways of integrating “just-in-time” support and interaction in different learning contexts.
