All that is strongly supported by ICT's. The response of students to these proposals is influenced by the dominating traditional system and most of times they prefer individual studying to the technology. This happens everytime they realize that technologies aren't a distracting subject or an escaping vehicle, but indeed they are a way to engage themselves more and more in applicating to study in a visible way for the teacher and opther mates.
