Abstract

Author(s): Aytekin ERDEM, G羹rcan UZAL

The purpose of this study is to determine principals' views on using technology to improve Physics education in high schools. The sample of the research was prepared by 114 volunteer school principals (principal / vice principal) working in Kocaeli and some other provinces. In the study, the survey model was used and the data were compiled with the help of a five-point Likert type scale developed by the researchers. The reliability coefficient of the scale is 0.91. The obtained data were analyzed with descriptive and inferential statistical techniques and some findings were obtained. According to these findings; it was determined that the school principals had a high level of participation in the "Suggestions for Teacher Competency and Technology Supported Subject Processing" and "Suggestions for the Implementation of Technology-Assisted Laboratory Activities". Moreover, there is no difference between school principals' views on the use of technology in improving Physics education and their some demographic characteristics; significant differences were found among the views of the principals who are outside the Physics and Chemistry branch and those with moderate knowledge of Physics, on the use of technology to improve Physics education.
