The purpose of this study was to find out how pre‐service student teachers expressed emotions through ubiquitous computing; meaning the use of mobile devices to facilitate wireless and seamless communications and data applications.

The results are presented as an analysis of emotional exchanges and experiences during the students’ teaching practice placements.

Discussion is focused on the role of ubiquitous computing in understanding student teachers’ emotional experiences in the field.
