Abstract

This chapter presents a case study of the use of ICTs, and in particular the blog, in a Spanish Secondary School classroom in order to promote the teaching of values such as solidarity or tolerance. The aim was to enhance coexistence in increasingly diverse and multicultural classrooms in which the acknowledgement and development of these values prove essential for a successful coexistence.

In our current open, flexible, and plural society, education should have as main objective the comprehensive development of students. This aim is founded on coexistence and the development of a responsible citizenship. Formal education systems should rise to the demands of our time and should promote intervention models, which favor what nowadays is termed interculturalism (Soriano & Peñalva, 2011).
