The participants of the study consist of 335 pre-service German teachers from nine higher education institutions in Turkey during the 2012–2013 education year. The data were collected by the “Technopedagogical Education Competency Scale” and a set of questions. The results reveal that pre-service German teachers had a high level technopedagogical knowledge competency. The teachers also have a high level of the four technopedagogical knowledge factors design, exertion, ethics and proficiency. The teachers have the highest level of technopedagogical knowledge competency by the factor proficiency and the least level by the factor ethics. The result of the analyses shows that there was a significant difference between the pre-service German teachers` level of proficiency in technopedagogical knowledge competency and the independent variables: having a personal computer, frequency of internet usage, an easy access to internet and following the technological developments in the field of German language teaching. Consequently, there was no significant difference between the pre-service German teachers’ level of proficiency in technopedagogical knowledge competency and the independent variables: gender and academic average. The results show that the participants have no significant difference among these independent variables
