During the school year 2001-2002, the Department of Computer Science of the University of Cyprus, in cooperation with the Department of Education, the Ministry of Education and Culture and the Bank of Cyprus, implemented a distance-learning project on mathematics between two primary schools in Cyprus. Our attention will focus on the development of a hybrid-learning environment, through the use of synchronous communications applications (teleconferencing) and asynchronous educational software (Geometer’s Sketchpad). The objective of this paper is to present the methodology for the introduction of synchronous and asynchronous applications into primary school environment, and the promotion of the new role of teachers in the new learning environment.
