    Abstract. This study investigates the perceptions of pre-service teachers on the role of technology courses in their current teacher training program/curriculum, as well as the extent to which they feel prepared on their ability to integrate technology into their classrooms. A semi-structured interview was conducted with 8 pre-service senior students. In addition, an online questionnaire was sent to 40 pre-service senior students of Suleyman Demirel University. A 5 point Likert Scale questionnaire with 29 items was used. Overall, the findings revealed that pre-service teachers have a strong positive attitude toward technology and high confidence in their competency in using technology. It must be borne in mind that the study was conducted with a small sample group of participants in one particular university. Therefore, further research is needed with an extended size of the sample as well as to expand the field of study.

    Abstract. Apart from linguistic competence, today’s globalized world demands Intercultural communicative competence (ICC), hence, integration of ICC in EFL classes has become one of the vital issues. Ten steps of Stoller (1997) is considered to be an effective tool of PBL which can create opportunities to improve ICC. In order to maximize the benefit of PBL in the classroom, the author suggests creating tasks by relying on Stoller’s (1997) ten steps of PBL. Tasks should be based on PBL essentials, at the same time tasks are closely interconnected with ICC main elements as: respect, tolerance, curiosity and authenticity. This article attempts to present the role of ICC in our society and how it can be culminated through project-based learning.
