dc.description.abstract The new information and communications technologies (ICTs) have become an indispensable tool for constructing networks and communities of practice, for accessing and managing knowledge, and for disseminating best practices in intercultural education. Social markers, Flickr, YouTube, Slideshare, RSS, Google, blogs, and wikis are some of the tools of the revolution of the socalled Web 2.0, which are characterized by their emphasis on the social dimension of the use of the new technologies. The proliferation of services and tools, many of them with free access and based on principles of free software, are democratizing the access to information and bringing groups of people from different points on the planet closer together. In the same way, Creative Commons licences and free software are liberating knowledge so that creative expression is not reduced to a consultation and exchange within a group of people but can be within reach of everyone. This chapter will present a panoramic vision of the state of the issue and a reflection on the application of the new technologies to intercultural education. en_US
