Higher education institutions are, at this moment, receiving students
known as digital natives. These persons are highly technological and
lack the patience to be co-enrolled in a traditional classroom. Taking
into consideration these characteristics it is necessary to propose an
educational reform to allow an immersion, interaction, or critical
thinking. With the purpose to study these factors we asked ourselves
some questions: “Is higher education taking into consideration the needs
and expectations of the students regarding the use of technologies?”;
“Are technologies being used in the classroom?”; “Are teachers using
them?” and if not, why? In this paper we present a study done with
students, from different programme of studies, and where we try to
contribute to the discussion of the questions formulated before.
