Abstract—Technology became considerably more critical for mathematics teachers during the Covid-19 pandemic era. Apart from examining pre-service mathematics teachers' knowledge about technology integration, which failed to reflect the unique characteristics of mathematics and underrated teachers' perception toward using technology in mathematics classrooms, this study aims to examine pre-service mathematics teachers' technology integrated competency through an enhancement program. Data were gathered from 25 pre-service mathematics teachers at Lampang Rajabhat University through journals, artifacts, and focus group interviews. Quantitative and qualitative analysis was by the research analytic framework's categories to define changes in participants' technology integrated competency. The primary finding was that participants gained a better knowledge of technology integrated lesson design during a four-month period. Most participants moved their emphasis away from technology as a teaching aid and toward providing students with mathematical learning instruments. Additionally, they emphasized the significance of their courage. They did not overlook the necessity of adequate mathematical knowledge for teaching when it came to improving mathematics teachers' roles in creating a successful technology integrated mathematics lesson. It was discovered in this study that the cooperative initiation and open lesson observation of pre-service mathematics teachers had a direct effect on their lesson preparation.

Index Terms—Teacher knowledge, pre-service mathematics teacher, technology integration, online lesson.
