The aim of this paper is to present some of the results of a doctoral thesis in progress. This thesis is part of the Industrial PhD Programme promoted by the Government of the Generalitat of Catalonia. The research is being developed by researchers of GRAD that aims to study issues related to attending diversity and inclusion of all students in the common school centers.
The doctoral thesis project maintains a connection with the project PAC 1 (Programa didàctic-inclusiu per atendre a l’aula alumnat amb necessitats educatives diverses. Una investigació avaluativa, SEJ2006-01495/EDUC), which began in 2006 and continued in its development until 2010, enabled the development of the CL/LC Program ("Cooperating to Learn/Learning to Cooperate"). Currently the CL/LC Program is being developed in approximately 300 educational centers in different communities in the Spanish State.
The research also upholds a connection with the project PAC 2 (Estudio de casos sobre el desarrollo y el proceso de asesoramiento del programa de apoyos educativos inclusivos del proyecto PAC, EDU-2010.19140), linking with the research line on "ICT and cooperative learning " in the axis of research: "The introduction of cooperative activity structures and strategies of self-regulation through the use of technology for learning and communication and in virtual environments" (GRAD, 2012).
The aim of our research is to adapt educational practices proposed through Project PAC to the conditions of learning environments mediated by ICT and to check whether the introduction of some changes made through an intervention that incorporates and adapts some structures of cooperative activity, as well as some educational tools to teach and assess teamwork (CL/LC Program) in a virtual environment vertebrate for an educational social networking website, and with the support of the ICT, concretely through mobile devices and/or tablets pc, will contribute to the improvement of teaching-learning processes of class-groups who participating in the study.
Is necessary to point out that from the practice, various centers who are users of the Program make this demand, therefore, the project aims to largely respond to these needs arising from teaching.
To achieve our aim the project will use the virtual social networking site developed by the Company ATTA (www.attacommunity.com), an educational social networking website which through the use of mobile devices and/or tablet pc and gamification, offers to the teachers and educational community resources and tools so that the students can be connected while they are learning and can do it cooperatively; the virtual social network developed by ATTA stands as a support tool to help the incorporation and the adaptation of educational practices proposed through the CL/LC Program to the educational environments mediated by ICT.
 Industrial Doctorate: Strategy promoted by the Government of Catalonia, in collaboration with public and private universities, which aims to contribute to the competitiveness and internationalization of Catalan industry, retain talent and position doctoral students in conditions to develop R & D in a company.

 The explanation of what is the CL/LC Program and how it is being implemented in the educational centers is available on the http://www.cife-ei-caac.com/programa.asp.
 ATTA is a Catalan company formed by engineers in telecommunications who is aimed at the educational community: schools, teachers, students and parents/tutors, with the intention to cover their needs in relation to the processes of teaching/learning and build a new model through the use of ICT with the aim of promote learning among online users, cooperative learning, creativity, research and the use of mobile devices.
