In a Teacher Education ICT course, 35 students worked with iPads on Project Based activities. The students lead projects in schools and produced video clips which portray their learning. The program was evaluated using three tools: the lecturer’s assessment, a questionnaire and questions asking about noteworthy ICT use in their teaching and by their lecturers and master teachers. Findings are that the projects were of high quality, that the students extensively incorporate ICT in their teaching and that they have positive attitudes regarding their benefits. They also criticized traditional use of ICT in their practice schools. Nevertheless, when describing successful examples of their teaching, most of them referred to teacher centered ICT use. Recommendations are that students should participate in more innovative practices in the college and schools and that reflection about their practices should regard not only teaching and learning but also a reveal of their underlying pedagogy.
