The students' motivation increases when this technology is used, leading to greater participation, and, consequently, better and faster acquisition of concepts/skills. Collaborative actions and cooperation between student/student, student/teacher and student/class are increased when mobile devices are used in the classroom context.

To use the tools effectively an understanding is essential and therefore there are implications in teacher training not only for the use and application of technology, but for the underlying concepts and support. This paper examined the evolution of mobile technologies in Higher Education Institutions in Portugal between 2009/2010 and 2014/
