Mobile phones have forcefully become part of our daily life. It seems that we can no longer live without it. In the present article, the author discusses whether it is appropriate to use smartphones in schools in a postmodern society as a tool of learning and studying. Fol-lowing a study conducted across families and teachers, a rather alarming fact has been high-lighted, whose meaning is here discussed and interpreted by the author. Undoubtedly, the focus of the discussion has been placed on the purposeful use of this tool to improve class-room activities. Does it benefit students learning? Does it encourage students participation or does it deflect their attention? More importantly, is it equally as important for teachers, or is this "ever so knowledgeable" technology gradually discrediting teachers professional role? The arguments above cannot be analysed without a socio-psychological perspective, which would also take into account its commonplaces.
