Direct observation of students activities by researcher. Using tools like Google analytics. Interviews with teachers and students. Using current evaluation tools of school.

Procedure: 1-Defining a set of teaching and learning tasks, activities, games, assessment methods, and assignments that stimulate students to use technology in their learning process and apply technology capabilities to communicate, share, create, and organize information. 2- Designing a cooperation model. 3- Designing a toolsselecting framework and selecting a set of web tools that can support the defined tasks in part 1. Responsible: teachers, research team, and a group of students.

Procedure: 1-Introducing and teaching the selected web tools to teachers. 2-Introdcing same PLE experiences to teachers and students. 3- Introducing the project to students and explain expectations of students. 4-Technology-using Etiquette will explained for students and signed by each student.
