Abstract: In the twenty-first century, preparing students to be a multiliterate person in order to be successful in a technology-driven society and workplace has become an issue for educators to think about. Web 2.0 learning, which engages students in an active, collaborative, learner-centered and technology-oriented learning environment, has gradually caught the attentions of teachers in PK-12 and higher education. However, research studies indicated that even though pre-service teachers use technology in their daily lives and know the advantages of using it for teaching and learning, they are not ready to integrate technology in their future teaching approaches. The results revealed in this pilot study attempt to form a basis of an ongoing research project which aims to investigate and understand pre-service teachers’ perceptions towards Web 2.0 applications in their future teaching activity.
