Forty preservice teachers, enrolled in a one-year BEd program in a northern Ontario university were involved in a laptop pilot project. This paper reports the impact of the laptops on the teaching learning experience of the preservice teachers and also explores the suggestions made by the preservice teachers for successful mobile computing initiatives. The laptop was found to be convenient tool for the preservice teachers because it gave them constant access to the Internet; exclusive access to educational software; and immediate communication with professors, fellow students, and associate teachers, and allowed them to complete program-related assignments with ease. Among the factors suggested for successful implementation of the program included a need for more time allocated to learning how to use educational software, and the need for professors to model use of the laptops by integrating the laptops in their courses.
