Abstract: Students handle technology regularly and practically and all of them make use of a smartphone. Integrating this fact into teaching allows us to approach the pedagogical objectives that we pursue, encouraging them to be involved in their learning and achieving better results in a simpler way for them. The students participated in an international video contest, which was used as an excuse by the organizers, making their own videos related to the subject they study. These videos were later published on the worldwide social network Facebook so that people could vote for them. Basic rules and a deadline for sending the work were provided. Subsequently, they proceeded to assess these contributions by themselves through a survey to know how they qualified the experience. 164 students from 5 countries participated, which produced 51 videos that received a total of 65,591 views in just one week. After the analysis of the questionnaires, it is concluded that the students liked it and they considered it easy to carry out this activity, since it did not cost them too much effort. In addition, it was useful because they reviewed the agenda, learned and synthesized content and ideas. Finally, 94% of them considered the experience positive.
