The objective of teachers’ personal and professional development is an excellent reason to reflect upon the innovation issues in education and a rare opportunity to implement the use of technology in the teaching practices. The most recent developments of digital technologies such as social software and Web 2.0 technologies allow experiencing new organizational and knowledge building that state the diversity and multiplicity of purposes. Based on the reflection on these two aspects comes up a proposal for the analysis and evaluation of these technologies which nowadays may easily be accessed by the educational community and may be used in the process of learning if used also as a meta cognitive and reflective strategy about teaching. Accordingly, this paper especially aims helping teachers in that process, providing an analysis grid of those technologies based on their pedagogical potentialities for the building of new ways teaching and learning.
