This study provides a systematic literature review of the research done in mobile assisted second language learning (MASLL) published since 2010. Starting from 1424 sources, 54 articles were selected using predefined selection criteria. The documents were analyzed and coded using the categories: educational form and level, study design, location, context, role of technology, pedagogical practice and learning impact. That information allowed an identification of major educational outcomes related to the integration of mobile devices into second language learning. In addition, the study contributes with a set of identified research gaps and recommendations for future research.
