Smartphones have become a part of the individuals in all societies. This is also true for students. Studies on the effects of the use of smart devices in educational environments, especially during the course, have begun to attract the attention of researchers. The aim of this research is to seek answer to the question of the positive effects of the use of smartphones in the education processes of graduate students. In the case study, which was designed as a Type 1 study, 29 students who received masters and PhD training in 10 different departments in the Educational Sciences Institute of one of Ankara's established universities were involved. According to the opinions obtained through the feedback form from participants who declared that most of them use a smartphone for more than 4 hours a day, it was determined that they used these devices for searching the subject or the term of the course, academic research, following course materials, taking notes via photographs or voice notes, communicating with peers and instructors, and so on.

Tüm toplumlara bakıldığında akıllı cep telefonları bireylerin birer parçası haline gelmiştir. Bu durum öğrenciler için de geçerlidir. Eğitim ortamlarında özellikle de ders sırasında akıllı cihazların kullanımının etkileri üzerine yapılan çalışmalar, araştırmacıların dikkatini çekmeye başlamıştır. Bu araştırmanın amacı, yüksek lisans öğrencilerinin eğitim süreçlerinde akıllı cep telefonu kullanımının olumlu etkilerine yönelik görüşleri nelerdir sorusuna cevap aramaktır. Durum çalışması Tip 1 olarak desenlenen araştırmada Ankara’nın köklü üniversitelerinden birinin Eğitim Bilimleri Enstitüsünde yer alan 10 farklı anabilim dalında yüksek lisans ve doktora eğitimini alan 29 öğrenci ile çalışılmıştır. Çoğunluğunun günde 4 saatten fazla akıllı cep telefonu kullandığını beyan eden katılımcılardan görüş formu yoluyla elde edilen görüşlere göre, bu cihazları daha çok derste geçen konu ya da terimi araştırma, akademik araştırma, ders materyallerini takip etme, fotoğraf ya da sesli not özelliği ile ders notu alma, akran ve öğretim elemanı ile iletişim amaçlı kullandıkları gibi, sıkılma nedeniyle ders ile ilgisi olmayan bildirimlerin ya da saatin kontrolü gibi eylemler için de kullandıkları belirlenmiştir.
