It was created an experiment in the university context, with the goal of creating a digital learning environment in which new technologies are used in order to create new content, new ways of teaching and learning, approaching the teaching experience to that of life daily and vice versa. He conducted a study/quantity in order to check whether the student, working on the use of new technologies, emerge some of its dimensions of digital literacy, and in what mode of action and reflection, surfacing that size.
