Abstract: Creativity is fundamental to the sustainable development of societies. However, lack a School model that promotes it. In Mathematics, exploratory open-ended and challenging tasks, based on the effective resolution of and well oriented confrontation and discussion moments are needed to foster this skill. The digital revolution brought a set of technological tools with great potential in the educational context, particularly to engineer collaborative work environments and to mediate communication. But, the use of these tools remains inadequate. The main objective of this qualitative study was to evaluate the potential of digital technologies to construct collaborative environments and as communication mediation tools and how these dynamics influence the development of creativity and communication in Mathematics as well as students’ (10–11 years old) digital literacy.Preliminary results suggest that the implementation of these technologies allow to develop cross-curricular and specific mathematical skills and digital literacies, and truly change the current educational paradigm.
