Abstract: 
This case study examines how three pre-service teachers in Singapore use different computing devices across different spaces. It provides a snapshot of their ubiquitous computing experiences and sheds light on how their ICT experiences affect their learning and consequently teaching. On closer examination, we found that in general pre-service teachers owned more than one mobile device, and chose which to use according to their needs and situation. The mobile device most often used for work-related purposes, whether as a student or as a trainee teacher, is the laptop. However, the usage of the devices is also limited by the ICT infrastructure of the different locations. The laptop is also sometimes used for leisure activities. The pre-service teachers' perceptions of the various devices and their affordances are also reflected in this paper.
