This pilot study was designed to explore how vicarious learning experiences and goal setting influence preservice teachers' self-efficacy for integrating technology into the classroom. In this pilot study, twenty students from the Teacher Education program at a Mid-western university participated and were assigned into four experimental conditions. Results showed the individual and collective effects of vicarious experiences and goal setting on the participants' judgments of self-efficacy for technology integration. More data were simulated based on the result of this pilot study to detect the effect of vicarious learning experiences and goal setting when the sample size was 80 participants.
