The paper highlights relevant points of the conceptual environment, offers a good selection of the two institutions compared, plays an important role and has proven to be relevant basis of the activities. The activities have been integrated in a wider strategic institutional development programme of the schools. The ICT tools were selected and used properly and in a professional, modern way, exploiting their best potentials. Several digital and online co-operative events have been rightly selected and carried out, in different complex themes.
