Sammanfattning: The purpose of this essay is to investigate how civic teachers and students perceive mobile as a didactic tool within the civic subject at the upper secondary school. In the result interviews the civic teachers testify that it is possible to create the conditions and opportunities to use the mobile as an effective didactic tool for training the demanded social science knowledge concerning power, democracy, equality and human rights, but that time is also required. Time to understand how this type of digital phenomenon affects citizens but mainly young people and how the mobile can be used to promote specific educational purposes. The amount of information that young people encounter through their phones can result in a challenge for civic teachers, since disinformation, hatred and propaganda are easily spread through social channels. Today, information from social media and different news platforms is more difficult to “control”, which brings both advantages and disadvantages. Teachers within the civic spectrum may perceive that it sometimes becomes problematic as students can point to facts that are not concrete, but something "read on the web". At the same time, there is the feeling that students often have a better understanding of technical aspects, which results in teachers being unable to feel inadequate in didactic work with the mobile in social studies.
