This paper presents a pilot study of testing a learning solution for smartphones, the Talking Tools (TT), under development. The study targets what, why, and when teacher students (N=11) use TT for microblogging about their work in a sloyd course. Their subjective reflections from a questionnaire using open-ended questions are used for validating earlier analysis of student blogs. Suggestions for teacher guidelines for using TT are discussed based on the findings.
