El uso educativo de dispositivos móviles, conocido como m-learning, se presenta en la actualidad como una alternativa con gran potencial para abordar la crisis de pertinencia de la educación como mecanismo social de desarrollo en el siglo XXI. Para abordar este asunto, se condujo una revisión sistemática de literatura sobre m-learning, a partir de la cual se encontró que, dependiendo del uso dado a los dispositivos móviles se generan al menos tres tipos de experiencias de aprendizaje de naturaleza distinta. Adicionalmente, se identificaron las principales ventajas del m-learning, sus riesgos, ámbitos de aplicación y focos actuales de investigación.
