This paper is a report on the findings of a study conducted on one hundred primary and secondary schools in Spain where we evaluate how digital tools can contribute to reinforce and develop new ways of tutoring and counseling. The research shows how many counseling functions can be highly enhanced with the use of virtual tools, i.e.: academic planning, career-postsecondary planning and personal-social-development. One of the most important school counselor’s roles is to coordinate resources and services to best assist students and families in fulfilling their needs. Virtual counseling through the development of virtual communities is a key strategy to better connect with groups –students, parents, administrators, teachers, and others– as part of a comprehensive developmental guidance and counseling programs. Indeed, effective school counseling programs are a collaborative effort among many important groups of people to which digital tools help significantly.
