Abstract: 
This paper reports one major finding from a large two-year, mixed-methods study that
investigated the process of beginning teachers’ learning to teach with information and
communication technology (ICT). Among the ten participants involved in the
qualitative portion of the study, three stood out from the rest in their effort to use ICT
in student-centred teaching approaches and translating their constructivist orientation
learned from the university into classroom practice. They began to develop leadership
potential to influence their university peers and their cooperating teachers during
their ten-week period of student teaching (Gao, Choy, Wong & Wu, 2009). During
their first year of teaching, they continued to develop their leadership potential for
technology integration by teaching with their ‘technology savvy’ strengths, leading
their colleagues in school-wide technology initiatives, and supporting other beginning
teachers. This study suggests that beginning teachers can learn to teach with ICT and
lead in technology integration at the beginning stage of teacher development.
