The purpose of this study was to examine the effects of a video-based case learning (VBL) system on developing technology integration competencies of student teachers. Overall, 52 student teachers were divided into 2 groups, (i.e., experimental and control groups). The experimental group was assigned to use the VBL system and participated in on-line discussion forums; the control group followed a regular schedule without using the VBL system. All student teachers completed questionnaires regarding their technology integration competencies at both the beginning and end of the course. At the end of the course, focus group sessions were arranged for the experimental group to discuss their personal experiences and gains from using the VBL system. The main results of this study are as follows: (1) student teachers’ pedagogical content knowledge grew substantially during their internships, which resulted in improved technological pedagogical content knowledge; (2) no significant difference was exhibited in the improvement of technology competencies between the experimental and control groups; (3) student teachers who possessed high computer-skill ratings exhibited a significantly higher growth in technology competencies than did students who possessed low computer-skill ratings; and (4) student teachers appreciated using the VBL system for improving their teaching practices. Finally, this study provides relevant suggestions regarding upgrading and implementing a VBL system, strategies for developing technology competencies, and future research directions that might help continuously develop the technology competencies of student teachers.
