by Vincent Pang, Lee Kean Wah, Vo Thi Kim Anh

The paper reports on part of a findings of a case study conducted in a Public University (a pseudonym) in Vietnam. The research adopted the qualitative approach with the in-depth interview as the instrument. Three experienced lecturers who also involved in designing the program and three student teachers were invited for the study. The research revealed that the program was not effective in educating student teachers how to use technology in teaching. Reasons for such inefficiency were the separation of “Technology in education” course from other methodological courses and the implementation of teaching practicum. Integrating technology in the curriculum and a stronger link between theories and practice in teaching practicum are suggested for developing students’ ability to apply technology in education.
