This paper is investigating how likely the digital native pre-service teachers (DNPST) are to use the free version of commercial and free online applications (FCFOA) as a teacher in a future classroom, after being taught about them through a semester-long technology integration course. A southern border university was chosen to conduct the study. The participants were coming from a diverse background and different age groups. An instrument used by Asing-Cashman, Gurung, Limbu, & Rutledge, (2014) was used to collect pre and post-test quantitative data. Data were analyzed using Pearson’s Chi-Squared and Fisher’s Exact tests where applicable. Results showed us that there are no significant differences between the pre and post-tests. Students seem to be already very likely to use technology tools in future teaching in the pre-test.
