Abstract: 
As part of a 2-year, mixed methods study, the focus of this paper reports the qualitative
findings that are related to nine beginning teachers’ learning to teach with Information
and Communication Technology (ICT) during their first year of teaching. It aims to explore how these teachers deepen their understanding performances of technology integration in their first year. They demonstrated consistent, varied perceptions, frequency and ways of using ICT for classroom teaching and learning from their initial
teacher education to their first year teaching. They developed diverse understandings of
technology integration from their own practice, and chose to play different roles, such as,
follower, doer and emerging teacher leader for technology integration. Suggestions to schools on providing beginning teachers with ongoing technical and pedagogical support and capitalizing on their tech-savvy strengths are discussed.
