Generally, high ability students are characterized for their brilliant responses, innovative solutions and good achievement in school. But in spite of the most people think, some high ability students doesn’t have success in school, they get bored and have problems in their learning process. These problems are caused, among other things, because of their lack of motivation in what they have to do. According to this and with the help of the technology, we are designing a learning material’s co-creation process where the high ability student is the principal actor. In this process, the student has the opportunity to mix his learning, interests and capabilities, be more active and has more responsibilities on his own learning. This article presents the pedagogical support to this co-creation process based on some learning-teaching models which were selected according to the high ability student’s especial characteristics. This pedagogical support is composed for some models' practices, tools and guides we chose to be part of the co-creation process and how the technology is going to help us to put them in practice.
