Part of the Advances in Intelligent Systems and Computing book series (AISC,volume 1192)

Abstract

Currently there is a fairly widespread tendency to investigate the use of mobile devices in education, since this type of device makes learning more flexible due to the possibility of using it anywhere and anytime. There are numerous projects that refer to the use of m-Learning and its incorporation into educational processes. This paper presents the results of an experience that was applied to a group of students of the Academic Department of Computational Systems (DASC) of the Autonomous University of Baja California Sur (UABCS) with the objective of analyzing the use of mobile devices as support in the classroom. The results show that the students improved the achievement rate, showing availability for the use of m-Learning. In terms of perception, the recognition of the benefits of using m-Learning environments stands out.
