Pre-service teachers develop technology competency during their tenure in the college classroom. These
stages coincide with Bloom’s Revised Taxonomy and offer the opportunity to learn and model technology
integration. 656 pre-service education students from five universities across the United States completed a
qualitative survey aimed at identifying how they perceived technology integration throughout their teacher
education program. Three themes, corresponding to Bloom’s Revised Taxonomy, were identified; 1) preservice
teachers first identify and understand technology as a tool, 2) pre-service teachers apply technology
and analyze the process of integration, and 3) overall, pre-service teachers do not evaluate and create
technology integration experiences. The results of this study are discussed thematically in relation to
Bloom’s revised taxonomy. Limitations are discussed and recommendations for future research examined
for pre-service teacher technology training.
