Information and Communication Technologies (ICT) has been considered an important component to integrate into teacher education programs in the twenty-first century. However, neither faculty members nor the pre-service teachers seem to benefit from ICT efficiently throughout the 4-year teacher education program in Turkey. This study was designed to find out the experiences of Turkish EFL (English as a Foreign Language) pre-service teachers about their practice-based training on ICT integration into language learning and teaching. The junior pre-service teachers were given training about ICT integration based on SAMR model (Substitution, Augmentation, Modification, Redefinition) throughout 4 weeks. Data were collected via semi-structured interviews and observations. The findings show that the participants found SAMR model beneficial and held positive attitudes towards using SAMR in their future classes.
