Today, the rapid advances in technology have been drastically changing and shaping the way humans live.In line with these developments, the use of technology in education has been on the increase and language education is no exception. Therefore, the expectations from language teachers have been changing. As expected from all teachers of other fields, language teachers are expected to integrate technology into their practices successfully. Technology integration into language courses naturally requires new qualifications for English language teachers. Because, the use of technology has been affecting and changing the way English is taught and students learn. Therefore, technological competence levels of English teachers should be improved. In this context, it is essential to equip English teachers with the necessary technological knowledge and skills before they become real teachers. It is suggested in the literature that the most important time to equip teachers with such qualifications is teacher training programs, that is, pre-service teacher education. This study aims to offer suggestions based on inferences drawn from the literature with the use of document analysis for teacher training programs in Turkey about how to educate English teacher candidates to integrate technology successfully into their practices.
