The purpose of the study is to explore student teachers' intentions and actions in technology integration in their classrooms. A postgraduate teacher education cohort of 118 Singapore student teachers participated in the study. The results suggested that student teachers in Singapore showed positive intentions to integrate technology to facilitate student-centered learning in their future teaching. However, they reported that they were more likely to use technology as a supporting and instructional tool during their student teaching rather than using technology to promote student-centered learning. Qualitative findings from 10 purposefully selected participants showed consistency with the quantitative results. The results of the study helped to better exemplify the student teachers' intentions and their actions in integrating technology into their classrooms. (Contains 4 tables.)
