The use of mobile technologies in education enables the access to and the implementation of modern teaching methods and tools. Nowadays, higher education faces a number of different challenges. Not only the technologies are developing at an extremely fast pace, but also the generations are changing – children are growing up in an environment where they are surrounded by different technological gadgets. These gadgets influence children’s communication, their access to information and also their learning habits. Upon entering the university, the learners continue to use their mobile phones for information exchange and communication. In response, higher education is trying to change in that direction. But it seems that the steps the higher education is taking are not fast enough to meet the expectations of the modern young people. The purpose of the research article is to define the problems and to outline the perspectives for mobile learning in higher education in Bulgaria.
