Abstract

Motivated by the significant increase in the presence of mobile devices in the classroom and the opportunity to use these resources to improve and streamline the process of teaching and learning, this paper proposes a pedagogical use of mobile technologies, specifically, tablets in the class. The proposal was developed under LabsMóveis, a subproject of the LabTEAR Project, and applied in an undergraduate program of the Health area. The use of tablets in the University classroom contributed to the expansion of general and specific cognitive abilities, stimulating creativity and leadership for the learners, while enhancing their initiatives to solve problems.
