The "Department of Guidance and mentoring in Secondary Education" subject is included in the Master's Degree in Education has been under development at the University Pablo de Olavide (Seville) from 2009-2010. It was decided from the outset to implement a methodology based on cooperative learning. Although theoretical models of cooperative learning are diverse, we can establish a link with Vygotskians pedagogical approaches based on the Zone of Proximal Development (ZPD onwards), to enhance social interactions and the use of mediating tools in social contexts. At its launch own contents of the tutorial is worked from the three core areas that are collected by Pujolàs (2008) for cooperative learning: group cohesion, teamwork as a resource and, finally, teach and practice workgroups using teamnotebook. A self-report was used during the course 20014/15 to test the effectiveness of group interactions. The evaluation results show how the teamnotebook properly regulates relations and enhances the effectiveness of teamwork.
