Abstract

Author(s): Aytekin ERDEM

The purpose of this study is to examine teacher views on the use of technology in physics education in high schools. 241 volunteer physics teachers working in Kocaeli and some other provinces constituted the sample of the research. The study was in the survey model and the data were compiled with the help of a five-point Likert-type scale developed by the researcher. The reliability coefficient of the scale is 0.88. The obtained data were analyzed with descriptive and inferential statistical techniques and some findings were obtained. According to these findings; it has been seen that Physics teachers agree with the views of “It helps me to find helpful items about the course in the LCD panel (interactive boards) and on the Internet, making it easier to understand the topics” at a high level while the other views were found to have lower levels of participation. In addition, there is no difference between teachers' views on technology use in physics education and some demographic characteristics (gender, seniority and school type); there were significant differences between computer literacy, laboratory instrument-using skill, professional perfection / competence level, professional development needs, and knowledge about the new Physics Curriculum and their views on the use of technology.
