The iTeacherEd project is a three-year action research process in a Faculty of Education at a Canadian University. The overall goal of the project is to develop a model for the integration of Information and Communication Technologies (ICT) into the teacher education curriculum. As part of the iTeacherEd project, a case study was designed to understand the development of pre-service teachers' ideas and experiences of integrating ICTs into their four-month internship. This paper highlights the experiences of six elementary school pre-service teachers, and their internship cooperating teachers, as they journey through the four-month internship. Several key issues emerging from the study are identified and discussed in the paper, including the significance of forming collaborative and constructivist approaches to ICT integration and the need to critically examine the contexts where ICT integration has the potential to enhance teaching and learning.
