Abstract: This study is part of a wider research project about higher education teachers’ achievement with digital technologies in their teaching activities, in Brazil and Portugal, and examines teachers’ skills and frequency in using these resources. Participants are mostly women, with a Master’s degree or a PhD, and from the field of humanities and social sciences. With an age range between 22 and 73 years, and teaching experience from six months to 39 years. Results suggest that the most used digital technologies in both countries are the computer, applications such as text editors, web browsers, power point, PDF, the mobile phone, virtual learning environments, and the multimedia projector. Regarding specifically the use of the internet, most teachers report that they access the internet on a daily basis to check/ log in their email, to search for news, and to create new documents. Concerning teachers’ digital literacy, higher levels of proficiency were found for an instrumental use of technologies when compared to the use for teaching. Based on these results, it is important to acknowledge similarities between teachers from both countries, which suggest the need to develop training programs for teaching with digital technologies.
