At the beginning of the 21st century in a world dominated by
technology it is essential to enhance and update the school, creating
conditions for the students to succeed, consolidating the role of
Information and Communication Technologies (ICT) as a key resource for
learning and teaching in this new era. In this chapter we will describe a
study that was carried out in a Portuguese school. As a means to
overcome some of the existing logistical obstacles in the school, where
the possibility of carrying out ICT activities without restrictions was
still dreamlike, the podcast was implemented as an m-learning tool.
Being aware of the fact that nowadays mobile phones and mp3 players are
part of our students' lives, we took advantage of this fact and the
podcast was used as a tool to support, to enhance and to motivate
students to learn English, used thus as a complement to traditional
(face-to-face) learning.
