In the Mexican National Education System, what has been done since the last two decades in terms of acquisition and development of knowledge, skills and attitudes in students is insufficient. Evidence of this is the results obtained in the various national and international tests, such as the National Assessment of Academic Achievement in Schools (ENLACE), Quality Exams and Educational Achievement (EXCALE) and / or PISA (Program for International Student Assesment). These standardized measures have shown that the learning deficit of Mexican students in basic skills such as mathematics and reading comprehension are not adequate for a society with sustainable growth.

Particularly, the results of the ENLACE test in the math subject in the state of Campeche, Mexico, reflect insufficient achievements regarding the acquisition of knowledge and mathematical skills in primary and secondary students (ENLACE-2012 shows that 45.8% of students in elementary schools and 76.4% of students in Middle School are located in an insufficient or elementary level). In view of this, arises the need to create support strategies for the teaching-learning process at the state level Campeche, Mexico in areas of mathematics and reading comprehension.

In response to the aforementioned situations, the Pilot Project: Educational Technology in Middle School was launched in 2016, which has allowed us to capture and serve a population (students and teachers) that needs to be enriched in the approach to concepts Mathematicians. In summary, a technical and pedagogical organization of the expected learning and curricular standards of the Middle School Study Programs 2011 was carried out for the proper functioning and attention of the students according to their needs and with the aid of dynamic Educational Technology and low cost. The Educational Technology used was the operating system EndLess, which allowed to develop interest among teachers and students as well as to establish work methodologies focused on Active Teaching.
Active teaching takes into account different teaching styles that may better engage the learners visually, aurally, verbally, physically and mentally. Active teaching helps create an excitement and engagement learning environment in the class, which helps build a motivation to gain more knowledge.

EndLess OS is a operating systems that comes with a diversity of functionalities that offers good motivations to students and teachers to work together interactively. Endless is designed to feel natural and intuitive, making it easy to use even if you have little or no computer experience. Endless is free to download, and software updates are automatically included. It's also virus-resistant, saving you money at every step.

In the present paper we describe the implementation of the Educational Technology project for Middle Schools in the state of Campeche, Mexico and its preliminary results.
