Abstract

This study is conducted to determine 1) how pre-service physical educators feel about their level of competence to integrate technology effectively in their professional career, and 2) any difference compared with two years ago. International Society of Technology in Education (ISTE) instruments have been used for self-assessments on (1) basic computer skill levels and (2) integrating technology into their learning, research, and future teaching. By far, the greatest proportion of each of the three groups of pre-service teachers, (1) general preparation, (2) pre-student-teaching/internship, and (3) post-student-teaching/internship, rated their level of competence to be minimal. The findings of the present research should demonstrate that pre-service physical educators have not been very well prepared to be technology proficient in order to teach in this digital age.
