Field experiences are critical to pre-service teachers to be competent teachers, and teacher educators have strived to provide student teachers with rich field experiences to allow them to connect theories learned in teacher-education courses with teaching practice observed in classrooms. Recently, mobile learning has become an important educational research topic owing to the widespread use of mobile technology and wireless networks. This study illustrates the design and evaluation processes of a system operating on the Antroid smart phone to support Taiwanese student teachers’ learning to teach at placement schools. Twelve student teachers who were conducting their teaching practice participated in the user test, and they mostly reported positive responses regarding functions and the user interface of the system. Participants also expressed concerns about the difficulty of inputting text via smart phones, the unavailability of batch-processing all recorded data, and the inconsistency of some screen layouts.
