One of the ways of realisation of m-learning is the usage of BYOD model in classroom, towards which teachers mostly show the negative attitude considering that the use of mobile devices in education does not contribute in great deal to the quality of teaching process. The research for the demands of this paper was carried out in March of the school year 2018 /2019 on the sample of 401 students of the subject teaching of 1st and 3rd primary schools Varaždin. The aim was to examine the attitudes and preferences of the primary school students about the use of mobile devices as a part of a teaching process as well as if there is a difference in the perception of primary and secondary school students about the allowance to bring their own devices for the school activities.
