MOLINERO BARCENAS, María del Carmen  and  CHAVEZ MORALES, Ubaldo. Technological Tools in the Teaching-Learning Process in Higher Education Students. RIDE. Rev. Iberoam. Investig. Desarro. Educ [online]. 2019, vol.10, n.19, e005.  Epub May 15, 2020. ISSN 2007-7467.

The objective of this work was to investigate the technological tools most used by university students in a higher education institution and to identify how these influence their educational process. The methodology was quantitative. And the instrument used was an electronic survey to collect information. In total, 224 undergraduate and graduate students participated.

The results obtained show that programs such as Microsoft Word and Microsoft PowerPoint stand out. Regarding videoconferencing, there are still very few teachers and students who use it. The software that excels in this aspect is Skype. On the other hand, the device that most students use for their work at school is the computer, but the one they most use for a game or application is the telephone. Likewise, it was observed that students use more and more technological tools in the school and not only those used by teachers. They themselves are given the task of looking for applications that serve their school activities. This was demonstrated with the educational platforms that they use, since not only have they used the institutional one, but others like Canvas and Socrative stand out.

With this research it was possible to demonstrate that although there are diverse applications for presentations, students still prefer the Microsoft Office programs for their school work. This information is relevant for teachers, and can be useful to generate and apply different strategies in the classroom, since for students these tools are necessary in their educational process and can help improve their performance.
