Abstract: Although technology enhanced learning is widespread in vocational training setting, Lithuanian Sectoral Practical Training Centers pay bigger attention to the use of specialized educational technologies, such as smart hairdresser workstation, electronic training stand, or simulator for specialized equipment management than social media. The use of social media as tool for training in a vocational training institution (especially sectoral practical training center operating in post-soviet country) requires more extended investigation because of social media continuous development, organizational culture as well as the emergence of new training and learning practices. Underpinned by the texts of symbolic interaction, this research explored how the vocational teachers, working in sectoral practical training centers, used social media tools (social networks, mobile apps and virtual learning environments). The grounded theory was applied for empirical data collection and analysis. The sensitizing concept - discovering self - made it possible to research vocational teachers not only as professionals, but also as adult learners continuously creating and sharing new professional knowledge. We found the split up in personal narratives, how teachers questioned the use of social media for the vocational training. Some research participants defended the opinion that smartphones and internet should not be used in classrooms, while others saw the benefits of such type of (practical) training. The study showed that even if social media use does not depend on the teacher's age, work experience and gender, vocational teachers and their students traditionally were involved into different mobile applications and social networks
