"Enciclomedia" is a Mexican project for primary school teaching using computers in the classroom. Within this project, and following an enactivist theoretical perspective and methodology, we have designed a computer-based package called "Dados", which, together with teaching guides, is intended to support the teaching and learning of probability. The purpose of this paper is to report on the development and use of both "Dados" and the teaching guides by teachers. These resources were created after careful analysis of the content of the mandatory textbooks used in primary schools in Mexico and following ideas found in the research literature. Results show that the use of the tools we have developed can help teachers in carrying out classroom activities that promote students' learning of probability. (Contains 1 figure.)
