This chapter is related to pre-service teachers preparing to teach in Kuwait public schools. Pre-service teachers were enrolled in an instructional technology course related to how to integrate emerging technologies, especially Web 2.0 tools, in their teaching. This course emphasized the connection between theory and practice reinforcing the process of how pre-service teachers smartly think about using web tools as means to enable them to experience deeper thinking when creating their lesson plans. This deeper thinking process will prepare them to transfer their gained experience into their actual teaching field. A conceptual model combining 7P-ILD with ASSURE model aided the design of the smart lesson planning environment. This design enables pre-service teachers to create innovative lesson ideas in the cloud environment. The lesson ideas and tools that were used to engage deeper learning enabled pre-service teachers to share their ideas with a wider audience and at the same time allowed the wider audience to assimilate these ideas into their own lesson structures.
