This study aims to investigate pre-service teachers' opinions about the technology. In this respect, the opinions of pre-service science and mathematics teachers were taken. The study was carried out at a university, located in the capital of Turkey. The data were collected from 20 pre-service teachers in the department of secondary school science and mathematics education. Criterion sampling was used. Interview form was developed to collect data. The results were presented in four themes: the role of technology in pre-service teacher's life, pre-service teachers' preferences about technology, pre-service teachers' technology competence, and pre-service teachers' opinions about use of technology in educational settings. It is expected that the results of the study will contribute to the revision of teacher education programs in terms of technology use and cultivate the learning environment by using technology more effectively.
