This study aimed to investigate the technology proficiency and academic stress level in the framework of pre-service teachers under the new normal. The descriptive-correlational research design was used to gather data from the respondents who were selected using purposive sampling to include 152 student teachers from the College of Education of Nueva Ecija University of Science and Technology. Two survey instruments were adapted in this study, the Technology Proficiency Self-Assessment Questionnaire for 21st Century Learning (TPSA C-21) and Perceptions of Academic Stress (PAS) scale, which were administered online as primary tools for data gathering. Pearson’s r Product Moment Correlation was used as statistical analysis tool with 5% level of significance to determine the relationship of the variables. The correlational analysis revealed the significant relationships of the identified variables. Although the pre-service teachers demonstrate high level of technology proficiency, they also encounter stresses related to academic expectations, work and examinations because of such proficiency. The results of the analysis show that technology proficiency is significantly correlated to stresses related to academic expectations (r = .164, p < .05). Hence, pre-service teachers with high level of technology proficiency have experienced more stress related to academic expectations. Furthermore, the correlational analysis also reveals that there was a significant correlation between technology proficiency and stresses related to work and examinations (r = .283, p < 0.01). Therefore, pre-service teachers with high level of technology proficiency have experienced stresses that are related to work and examinations. It is recommended that further research be conducted to generate a more generalizable result.
