This article focuses on improvement of the conditions for educational integration by using mobile technologies, which will increase motivation and participation of the students in the educational process. The focus is placed on disadvantaged learners – groups at risk, whose ethno-cultural peculiarities, special needs and social-economic situation considerably limit the opportunities for adequate education for them. The integration of these groups depends mainly on their training and the knowledge they acquire. Mobile technologies facilitate memorizing and learning by offering visual and audio stimuli and therefore they are appropriate for people with deficits.

In the paper we present the following educational scenarios:
1. Enhancing of interactivity in teaching of Roma children using mobile devices. The use of multimedia resources in education by mobile devices would be appropriate, because they incorporate something new, figurative and attractive, which has a real chance of a beneficial effect on the motivation of the minority group.
2. Training of learners with hearing disabilities, supported by mobile devices. Our goal is integration of students with hearing disabilities into the learning process through the use of innovative educational technologies for learning by mobile devices.
3. Use of mobile technology to expand training opportunities of people with musculoskeletal disorders. Learning by mobile devices has the potential to increase access to education for people with limited mobility, to create a supportive learning environment, independent of time and place - removes spatial barriers - physical classrooms have become redundant in the traditional sense of the word and students can conduct courses from a place and at a time of their choice.
4. Use of mobile devices for distance learning of unemployed. This scenario will focus on people who have no access to education because of distance, lack of financial security, socio-economic exclusion.
