Constant improvement in school system aimed at reaching a high level of educational quality poses the importance of introducing new deals with progressive changes. The use of Information and Communication Technologies (ICTs) in school environments makes it possible to reach this aim, as–in our opinion–they bring innovative changes enabling an improvement of quality in services and an adaptation to the new social demands. In fact, the new trends arising from ICTs undoubtedly involve a revolution in all spheres of our lives, which have a clear impact on the new paedagogical arguments claimed by the teaching discourse. Our study focuses on the assessment of school experiences using ICTs as a basic learning tool and aims at determining the characteristics of ICTs implementation in the classroom and at describing the phases in a process of educational innovation using ICTs as a resource.
