Abstract: With the massification use of the Internet and its Web X.0 tools, teaching methodologies need to adapt to this new reality. Current student’s belongs to the new information society, dominated by digital technologies, need to be constantly connected to the world's largest information network, inside and outside of the learning context. This forces teachers to create more attractive and exciting methodologies so that students will be motivated and willing to learn. With this article we intend to put into practice a model validation web X.0 tools for teaching and learning, analyzed, designed and developed by the authors in previous investigations. The implementation and evaluation of the model was based on the study of two separate cases, both performed by the author. In the first study, the target population consisted of 22 graduates of a modality of education and training for active life. In this study the reference training was in the area of education and training of computer sciences, with the process of education and training for installation and operation of computer systems, Level 2. The unit training that allowed to evaluate the model was computer architecture with a duration of 50h. The second case study had the participation of 20 trainees from one modality of education and training for active life, whose reference training is in the area of education and training of trade. In this study, the process of education and training of technical / commercial Level 4. And the training unit that allowed us to assess the model was the English language with a duration of 50h. The purpose of the two case studies was to use a different methodology, never before used by trainers using web tools X.0 previously assessed by the model for the transmission of the content of the training reference. The methodological approach used in this research is characterized by an explanatory purpose of the case study, with data collection procedures performed through two questionnaires. An initial questionnaire assessing knowledge and another Final evaluation of satisfaction, and the sources of information was quantitative. As a final analysis of two case studies it is concluded that trainees positively rate experience and they learned the content more enjoyable way. Regarding the purpose of the study, it was found that the transmission of content implied a greater effort of the trainers, as they had to restructure sessions depending on the Web X.0 tools used. However, every effort was rewarded as the learning outcomes were great. Noted a greater commitment and motivation among learners, reaching these better results in the evaluation. The tools choice occurred through the appropriate model are reflected in the final for the satisfaction of trainees and their positive results. This study proved to be a contribution to the use of the model choosing the web X.0 tool for transmitting syllabus traditionally complicated modules to assimilate and understand, as has been the case with hardware and Business English. As future implications for learning, we suggest the use of the model in other modular activities as a way of consolidating the study and allow the teacher to assess the degree of functionality of web tools X.0. Since many times these same tools are used by students outside the classroom context, enabling the use of them in learning a more efficient and enjoyable way for students.
