The penetration of smart technologies in Greek Primary Schools is at its very beginning, even though we are going through a period of digitization of education practices. Most Greek Public Schools do not own smart learning systems.  As a result, lagging in new educational practices that trending on other countries and alternative educational systems. The lack of infrastructure in all public schools is related to the long economic recession that Greece has suffered and the low reserves of the country's local authorities that maintain and equip public schools. Even if a school own any electronic alternative system in educational process, it is not technologically at the cutting edge but at least a decade behind. Greek schools still use conventional writing and reading systems. Rarely Primary schools’ own laptops, projectors and smartboards for the teaching prosses. Teachers still communicate with parents in person, about their students' performance during long meetings in the school building and it is not even applicable for parents to register their children on line. All the above is happening in a modern European country that trains and grows tomorrow's millennials. In this essay we focus on Public Primary Schools and on teachers' views on the smart education tools available to them related to the teaching prosses and their acceptance from the student’s perspective. We were interested about the effectiveness of the methods, the receptivity of the young students, and the interest they are showing in using smart learning practices. We also involved teachers to indicate their students' concentration, receiving knowledge and ability after using smart devices in learning. Finally, we asked teachers to evaluate students' ability in new technologies in an effort to relate it to family income.

Keyphrases: Computational Intelligence, Smart Education, Smart Technology Reception.
