  3. 3. Objective: The objective of this project is give a glance of the learning process using mobile devices in the classroom, taking into account the socio-economic aspects in our university and comparing and contrasting them with first world institutions (USA).
  4. 4.  Introduction: Nowadays, we are living in a technological era, we are facing everyday with new devices that are getting more and more reachable to society in general. This can lead to an attention problem in students, and can make them feel like the learning techniques are becoming out-dated. One way to help them feel more comfortable with their learning environment might be incorporating gadgets they’re already familiar with — cell phones, tablets, and smartphones —.
  5. 5.  Mobile devices  CELL PHONES  The simplest of them all but still fairly powerful. They can be used  for group discussions via text messaging, and since so many cell phones  have cameras, they are useful for photography-based projects as well.  Students can also record themselves reading stories aloud for writers’  workshops or practicing speeches.  E-BOOK READERS  Their fundamental function, of course, is for reading books and storing  entire libraries. They also provide easy access to dictionaries. Many  students also use their e-book readers as a replacement for the  daily paper, since they can read various editions and magazines on it.  Well-known brands include Amazon’s Kindle and Barnes & Noble’s Nook.
  6. 6.  MP3 AND PORTABLE MEDIA PLAYERS (SUCH AS THE IPOD TOUCH)  Free lectures and short videos are available for downloading via the  iTunes U app, or on the Internet at sites such as, which  has animated educational videos. Apps can also be downloaded onto  the devices and many are equipped with cameras students can use to  shoot and to post to a website. Read the Edutopia blog “iPod, iListen,  iRead” ( to learn more about how these devices are used  to help students master reading  TABLETS  Apple’s iPad, the Kindle Fire, and the Galaxy are just a few models of  tablets, and they can do anything e- book readers can do and then some.  Downloadable apps, many educational, make these machines nearly  comparable to computers; you can surf the Web, play games, watch  (and even make) movies, as well as take photographs. Many schools  have started purchasing tablets for the K-5 crowd, though they’re  plenty useful for older students, too
  7. 7.  SMARTPHONES  The older the students, the more likely they are to be wielding one  of these. Like tablets, smartphones have many computer-like  functions. (They’re also phones, of course.) They can run apps and  software, record audio and video, send and receive email and texts —  functionalities that can easily be channeled into classroom inquiry.
