Digital competence is one of the most fundamental competences pre-service teachers should have. Training programs have been carried out to support digital competence. It is also important to examine how pre-service teachers plan to use the knowledge and skills that they have gained from the digital competence training in different contexts. Thus, this case study examined the pre-service teachers' perspectives on personal, pedagogical, and professional digital competence in digital competence training. The study was conducted with 30 pre-service teachers. As a result, the digital competence training supported pre-service teachers to develop a perspective for reaching their personal, pedagogical, and professional goals through activating their information and data literacy, communication, and collaboration, digital content creation, safety, and problem-solving competence areas.
