The current importance of Information Technology and Communication as may be reflected in the global have been allowed to take the world of information, facilitating communication between people and institutions not only at community or state level but also world, which has succeeded in eliminating barriers of time and that not long ago were considered insurmountable. In a changing society as we live, the school is the great opportunity to integrate this reality and to involve the entire school community actively laid reality.

One way to involve the entire school community is to incorporate computers in the classroom and home environment of our students through various means such as information for parents, encouraging the use and participation by all teachers for students can see it as an instrument of daily use in school everyday reality. Students today have so internalized media such as film or television that does not come to regard as innovations in educational use, which is why the network with the Internet and some of its language and life, and therefore a modern education should be included in order to effectively reach every student in the center.

The media are a constant presence in contemporary society, learning that people perform informally through our social relations, ICT and other media, television, and especially the Internet, more have more relevance to our cultural heritage and is reflected in day to day and of course in the school world.

Therefore, the use of this kind of teaching involves obtaining the maximum profitability of those personal and technological resources, or may reach the center, and its effectiveness will depend on a planned and selective application of these resources. We can therefore say that the adoption of information technologies and communication in schools and in the classroom is necessary that they be introduced gradually and systematically, through a plan to facilitate coordination of teachers and will allow enriched by the contributions of all professionals. The information technology and communication should be placed consistently at the service of the goals of education through participatory learning skills, communication and collaboration, through critical and creative activities.

Regarding the conditions for the educational use of ICTs, it seems clear that these new possibilities, but first must overcome the guidelines can we use the medium as such and not as an end, this should be the goal, they are therefore new technologies tool and not an end in itself.

The advantages of using ICT are shipped in the use of a different pedagogy than usual, which should not be concerned only about the transmission of technical skill, avoiding the use of ICT as a means only new or purpose in themselves but trying to use the motivation that this entails. Among the problems we must consider social and territorial inequality, ICT can increase if access to Internet strengthens the learning in one area, but some students have it at home and others do not. Therefore, in the use of technology in order to be equal fundamental and permanent, in the form of use in education and in what it represents as social equality, we must be aware of the reality of our center and therefore apply principle of equal opportunity, to do a preliminary analysis of the situation will be essential.
