There has long been a missing link between the National Information Strategies for Education and its implementation into teaching practices in schools. In this chapter we present the new collaborative cognitive tools (CCT) for shared representations. The cognitive tools make a difference by providing a platform for collaborative construction of the school's information strategy with a shared vision and practice-oriented goals supporting its implementation. Collaborative cognitive tools work as mediators in a transformation process from the traditional school cul- ture, where teachers work alone, to the new culture of teachers' collaboration and teamwork. In addition, they provide an instrument for pedagogical leadership for school principals.
