As a European ultramarine territory, Reunion Island is a developed country. Secondary schools are already using digital collaborative network in classrooms. Their impacts are not only in new interests for studies through digital knowledge but most unexpectedly for collaborative interaction between students in project related teachings. Sciences and technology classrooms are experiencing collaborative work opening to the changes in business and industry, and the whole society. The shift towards the integration of physics, natural sciences and technology into a common subject is experienced in project related pedagogy with a supportive digital collaborative network. The use of digital networks in classrooms brings also a new dimension in the training of students in anticipating professional conditions. The changes in educational approaches in our digital society are indicators of our shift towards better understanding of Y generation students’ aims and better transition into the future.
