A pedagogical characterisation of both "analogical" and digital learning environments based in the role of teachers and students, the approach to knowledge, teaching materials, educational interaction and students assessment will allow us to identify not only the similarities and differences between both environments but what it's more important, the challenges education face in contemporary societies. Such analyses will help us to increase our understanding of the pedagogical dimensions of ICT-driven learning environments.
