Today we are moving from the world of cellular communication to the era of internet. Mobile technology has paved a way into our pockets. We use mobile phones as an extension of our body. With the advent of these pervasive devices MOOCs, m-learning, e-learning has found a way into our classroom. Smart learning technology is growing exponentially with smartphones as a major part. In this work, we try to model the traditional classroom with Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) concept. We statistically find if these mobile devices are suitable for classroom or not. The data collected by the survey was used to find the adaptability of mobile devices in the traditional classroom using JASP Tool. A descriptive statistics analysis, linear regression techniques, and Bayesian sample paired t-test are done on sample survey data to find the compliance of smart devices in the classroom. The vast expansion of mobile technology has not only enhanced student-teacher interaction but has also improved the quality of education.
