Abstract

The purpose of this study was to investigate student teachers’ beliefs of teaching and English language teaching using technology. One hundred twenty-six pre-service teachers participated in this study. The collections of data included personal drawings, essays, and interviews. The results showed student teachers beliefs of that supportive learning environment, active teaching, student-centered, teacher personality, and caring. However, student teachers’ beliefs about teaching and learning seemed disconnected from their beliefs about technology. Few are found to incorporate autonomy supports which feature interactive communication and supportiveness. These results provided vital concerns regarding the understanding of teachers’ beliefs and perceptions of actual practice and the preparation of technology integration for future elementary teachers and the in-service development of teaching practice.
