To what extent can a mobile technology support teachers and trainee teachers in their professional practices? How can their Continuing Professional Development (CPD) made accessible and be facilitated? Using a mobile application, VEO (Video Enhanced Observation), this research presentation will firstly introduce the VEO App as an instrument to support CPD and secondly integrate its different possibilities of use in an on-going doctoral study regarding the use of mobile technologies to facilitate CPD of pre-service English teachers. Ethnographically, qualitative data shall be collected using different instruments (videos, interviews, professional dialogues, electronic diaries), to understand how English teachers perceive themselves and investigate the benefits of the VEO App for CPD. As a tool for teachers or teacher trainees, it this application aims them to become agents of their own CPD, facilitate professional communication and reflective practices.
