Abstract: This paper presents results of two research works, the first approaches non-formal education and the second addresses formal education. In both studies in-depth interview techniques were used. There were some points of convergence between them on aspects such as the implementation of learning environments and the integration of ICT. The interview questionnaire consisted of a list of five questions that were directed to theoretical and practical levels. Authors like Lavigne, Barbera and others who have contributed on education, information and communication technologies were revised for theoretical framework.
Keywords: teaching; ICT integration; information technology; communications technology; new technologies; learning environments; formal education; non-formal education; Baja California; Mexico; innovation; Gilles Lavigne; Elena Barbera; change; challenges.
