Abstract: Learning ecologies (LE) can be defined as the set of contexts of activities, resources and relationships that students and teachers have at their disposal and that can be activated, thus generating new learning opportunities. This concept provides students and teachers with an individual asset for their learning / professional development, but also points out the relevance of relationships with the families, colleagues and students that can be boosted by ICT. Many students (or students¿ families) use personal technologies that enable them to be fluent in several areas of school learning. As for the teachers, many of them use the potential offered by technology and social media to be professionally updated and to be aware about new trends on using ICT for educational practices that can make their teaching more attractive for their students. Learning opportunities generated by LE can be found in different contexts: formal, but also, and above all, non-formal and informal, just as we can find them in face-to-face, mixed or completely virtual interactions. Understanding and being able to use this rich complexity is what can make us learn more and in improved ways. In the school context, for learning ecologies, it is essential to ensure that all students have equal access to digital resources which is important for students who have no possibilities to use, and learn to use, digital technologies during their leisure time.
