Abstract: 
This article attempts to review technology integration efforts in Singapore schools and at the National Institute of Education (NIE, Singapore). The Singapore Ministry of Education (MOE) launched the 'Master plan for IT in Education' in 1997 and has since invested about US$1 billion to establish IT infrastructure, equipment, and resources in all Singapore schools. The aim is to enhance the teaching and learning milieu through IT-based instruction. As a result of this master plan, the school curriculum was gradually changed and IT became integrated into all subject areas. In order to practically implement the IT Master Plan in education, teachers need to be competent in the use of IT for instruction. It is within this context that the NIE's approach to preservice teacher training in the use of IT in education is being introduced.
