Abstract:Information technology and communication have been incorporated in the educational context as learning tools together to the educational task and to the learning of the pupil. From an educational point of view have a lot of advantages both for the student to the teacher. The student can increase their productivity, has increased motivation, greater communication between teachers and students, as well as facilitating greater autonomy for the student to select information in their learning. The teacher lets you get a major source of educational resources, avoiding repetitive jobs, and make it more personalized follow up of the difficulties and needs of students. The aim of our work is to describe our experience using the Blog in university teaching as an interactive instrument, where the students together with the teacher share the information that is deposited in it and that teachers and pupils are actors in the development of information and learning. The methodology used is in the approach to action research and its implementation in the university teaching of the title of Master of Early Childhood Education. Conclude by drawing a series of reflections on the contributions that have made our experience from using the blog as an educational methodology that generates more constructivist learning, meaningful and functional information management and learning in the university context.
