The use of tools, that new technologies show us, offer a lot of advantages and drawbacks which should be analized for a better use of them in the classroom, and didactic-teaching achievemente. The purpose of it is to show a blog as a motivating learning tool for university students, just in the experience of a classroom workshop for Diabetes care. Methodological tools have been used such as: lectures, true experiences, getting information on paper or digital access, rol-play and teamwork, whose assesment has been constructive. But we want to emphasize the use of a blog about Diabetes developed by nursing students like an innovative learning tool wich is very important because it improves the understanding, development, assimilation and adjustment of the contents. And it has allowed them "to learn how to teach" that is, to show a piece of their work and results as in the future they will be demanded in their jobs like Doctors.
