This paper describes the potential impact of
social media and new technologies in secondary education.
The case of study has been designed for the drama and
theatre subject. A wide set of tools like social networks,
blogs, internet, multimedia content, local press and other
promotional tools are promoted to increase students’
motivation. The experiment was developed at the highschool
IES Al-Satt located in Algete in the Comunidad de
Madrid. The students included in the theatre group
present a low academic level, 80% of them had previously
repeated at least one grade, half of them come from
programs for students with learning difficulties and were
at risk of social exclusion. This action is supported by
higher and secondary education professors and teachers
who look forward to implanting networked media
technologies as new tools to improve the academic results
and the degree of involvement of students. The results of
the experiment have been excellent, based on satisfactory
opinions obtained from a survey answered by students at
the end of the course, and also revealed by the analytics
taken from different social networks. This project is a
pioneer in the introduction and usage of new technologies
in secondary high-schools in Spain.
