Abstract

This article explores the perception of coordinators and specialists in the field of innovation in Spanish universities in the use of mobile devices in the classroom. A structured questionnaire was applied to a sample of 38 representatives of universities from 12 autonomous communities. The results are organized in four dimensions of analysis: situation of teaching innovation in the university; opportunities in the use of mobile devices; institutional perspective on its integration; and perception of the innovative profile of teachers. Regarding the relevant results, it is noticed the role of mobile devices as technologies at the service of the improvement of innovation processes; a realistic and critical look is appreciated on the matter and the pedagogy is put before technology itself. On the other hand, there is a lack of clear institutional policies that promotes the use of devices in the classroom and the development of applied methods, which is why we still find an incipient development in the context Spanish university.
