In this study we aim to present a teaching scenario in the lesson of ancient Greek "Antigone" of Sophocles, in which ICT is used as a tool for the cultivation of cognitive, communicative and metacognitive skills. The proposed scenario will be implemented with the exploitation of the collaborative teaching method, in which the emphasis is placed not only on the result but also on the process itself. The product which is produced, of course, is always richer and more creative than what each student could have achieved on his own. The role of the teacher is to concentrate on a problem solving process in a context of authentic learning, where children have the opportunity to express their opinions, listen to others' ideas and collaborate with each other in order to solve a problem of real life.
