A technology-friendly teacher education program can make pre-service teachers more comfortable with using technology from laggard to innovator and change their learning styles in which they prefer the use of technology in teaching. It is investigated how a technology-friendly mathematics education program, which provided 49 pre-service teachers an opportunity to conduct technology-based class activities and to develop teaching materials using technology, affects their perceptions about technology and learning styles. Results showed that participants were more highly receptive to be an innovator or early adopter which means they are more eager for using technology as a teaching tool. This implies that teachers' perceptions and learning styles can be potential, sustainable, and possible variables to be changed for meaningful teaching with technology.
