In the presenting project, researchers tended to figure out how a technology-enhanced teacher preparation curriculum influences the development of pre-service trainees' technological pedagogical content knowledge. For that purpose, the utilization of specific aimed website, Technology Enhanced & Assisted Curriculum Headquarter, is embedded in the course to help teacher educators guide pre-service teachers for designing teaching projects and online courses, especially those used to implement technology embedded teaching. Researchers of this work-in-progress project expect to have semi-structured interviews with these trainees to collect qualitative data. Besides, the artifacts and teaching trial video tapes will be also collected as for the aim of triangulation. At last, researchers will try to make some comments and suggestions to science teacher education from the findings and further to amplify the significance and value of computer technology in science education.
