Abstract. The article examines the transformation of social practices of using mobile phones by students. Two areas of manifestation of social practices were the focus of the authors' research: the daily life of students and the learning process. The article provides an overview of the works of foreign and domestic authors who have made a significant contribution to the study of the transformation of social practices of using mobile phones in everyday life. The methodological basis of the article is the theory of media as a continuation of M. McLuhan's man, which is supplemented by the constructivist theories of I. Hoffman, P. Berger, T. Lukman, which made it possible to trace the transformation of social practices of using mobile phones. Social practices are daily actions and routine actions that do not require explanation, performed in a familiar way in everyday life. The research method was the focus group (N=32), the informants were students of Volgograd State University; the time of the study: December 2021 – March 2022. The study allowed us to conclude: the first mobile phones performed the function of movement control, were used as toys, initiating individual and group gaming practices. The presence/ absence of a modern game or a phone model made it possible to use power resources, move through the steps of the social hierarchy in the school team. Currently, students use mobile phones for oral communication, but visual and written communication practices are no less popular. The usual social practice using a smartphone is listening to music, communicating on social networks and messengers, sending messages, watching videos. Modern mobile phone applications allow you to turn it into a professional earning tool, facilitate everyday life, accompany the learning process. A modern mobile phone has become a "part of a person", to forget it is to lose touch with the world. The presence of a smartphone is perceived as a necessity for everyday life, leisure, work and education. A special style of communication has developed among students, unthinkable without the use of modern telecommunication means, namely a smartphone.
Key words: mobile phone, smartphone, student youth, mobile phone users, mobile devices, mobile communications.
