We present our findings about the effectiveness of a 12-week ICT integration course, which emphasized student-centered pedagogy, on 108 Singaporean pre-service teachers’ TPACK. The effects were evaluated using a validated TPACK survey instrument. CFA of the pre-course survey results yielded an eight-factor model with the Content Knowledge (CK) component divided into two subject-specific components. Paired-sample t-test showed significant increase in the participants’ ratings of all TPACK components. TPK, TCK and TPCK were the three most improved components and PCK was the least improved component perceived by the participants. Emphasizing student-centered pedagogy improved pre-service teachers’ knowledge about how various components related to technology, pedagogy and content interacted differently. In retrospect, insufficient attention was given to non-ICT based pedagogical approaches to enhance the participants’ PCK, which might be necessary for future pre-service ICT courses.
