Over recent years, technological pedagogical content knowledge (TPACK) has been commonly used as a technology integration framework in both research and practice to support teacher knowledge in terms of instructional decision making in a technology-driven learning environment. This chapter focuses on collaboration between pre-service classroom teachers and ICT teachers. Within the scope of technology integration and by characterizing Computer Education and Instructional Technologies Department (CEIT) graduates as technology coordinators besides their ICT teacher role in Turkey, a collaborative process in which pre-service teachers from CEIT department work as technology mentor to those in the classroom teaching program was carried out. As a result of collaboration between pre-service teachers, due to the two-way interaction, it was expected that the pre-service classroom teachers could develop their knowledge in terms of TPACK and pre-service teachers from CEIT could able to have tangible experiences about the role they will take on in the future in the context of integration.
