Abstract

In the European region, the use of mobile learning is already a reality. As a result, studies in the field started to arise in Portugal, both at the higher education level and at the secondary education level. In order to get to know the use that the Portuguese academic community makes of the mobile technologies, either for personal or classroom use, a survey was carried out with students, professors, researchers and staff from public and private universities from north to south. The findings show that the majority of the community members have sufficient technological means to access this kind of technology. In spite of this, it is still not widely used, even though the individuals believe in the potential of its didactic implementation.
