The level of technological competence felt by pre-service teachers within the context of teaching health education in a K-12 setting is largely unknown, although teacher education technology preparation has been addressed by the Department of Education for more than 10 years since the PT3 Project. Therefore, determining the level of confidence and competence in integrating technology into their professional learning, research and teaching is of importance in an age of digital communication. This research project assessed the self-confidence and self-reported technology competence of education-majors with a minor in health education using the surveys designed by the International Society of Technology in Education (ISTE) based on national technology standards.
