Nowadays, teachers have a great responsibility in developing And updating their technology knowledge and competences, because in an environment where technology affects education so much, the way to achieve the desired objectives in lessons is to integrate technology into the classroom environment effectively. The purpose of the current study was to investigate the technological pedagogical content knowledge (TPACK) development in terms of TPACK efficacy levels and technology integration qualities of pre-service science teachers enrolled science methods course enhanced by the application of the TPACK-IDDIRR Model. The participants of the study were 57 undergraduate students from Elementary Science Education department. Data sources included the TPACK-Deep survey in order to evaluate the TPACK efficacy levels, lesson plans and micro-teaching observations in order to evaluate the technology integration qualities of pre-service science teachers. In the study, it was observed that the TPACK efficacy levels and technology integration of pre-service science teachers was raised considerably after the science methods course and in order to determine such increase was significant or not statistical analysis were applied. The statistical analysis revealed that the science methods course enhanced by the application of TPACK-IDDIRR model had positive effect on pre-service science teachers in terms of both TPACK efficacy levels and technology integration quality.
