This paper reports the findings of a study conducted on pre-service teachers enrolled in a teacher preparation course: “Teaching with Micro-computers”, at a major rocky mountain university. This study suggests ways to improve per-service teachers’, intent to use technology. Findings indicate that learner characteristics- birth order, major and gender, significantly influence pre-service teachers’ intent to use technology. The study also indicates that pre-service teachers’ intent to use technology increases with their computer experience, which was measured as the number of computer-based courses enrolled and number of hours spend on computers per week by a pre-service teacher, but after a particular level of experience, intent actually starts declining. This finding can be very helpful in effectively designing the technology integration courses for pre-service teachers.
