The growth of the students’ current generation in a context of expansion and development of technology led to new learning styles that must be taken into account in order to make learning more meaningful and appropriate to the challenges of real life. Individuals are no longer just information consumers to become more and more content producers with multiple possibilities of sharing and collaboration. In this paper we put forward an attempt at going deep into reflecting upon the potential of ICT for the promotion of citizenship skills, based on some preliminary data that resulted from a teacher-training program developed by the researcher in order to promote the acquisition of technical skills and facilitate the use and appropriation of ICT in Civic Education classes.
