During the 2013-2014 school cycle, the Mexican government started the Mi Compu.MX program and gave a personal computer to children of fifth and sixth grade of primary education in the states of Sonora, Tabasco and Colima; the goal was to reduce the digital and social gap between families and to contribute to the improvement of learning conditions of children and the updating of ways of teaching. To determine if the program had an impact in the improvement in the teaching ways, we made the present study with the purpose to make a diagnosis to measure the level of integration of portable computers with the pedagogical practices of teachers of Sonora who participated in the program. We followed a quantitative methodology of exploratory-descriptive type, in which the teacher digital abilities were measured through a self-applied questionnaire, as well as an online simulator. Results show that teachers slightly exceed 60% of hits, in most of the computer skill tests and that they perform the pedagogical practices on an average level up to 2.1 points from expert level.
