The aim of this study is to evaluate the attitudes of technology and design teachers towards computer assisted teaching in terms of various variables. The population of the research consists of 147 technology and design teachers working throughout Eski?ehir in the 2022-2023 academic year. The sample of the research consists of 105 technology and design teachers randomly selected. Within the scope of the study, a literature review was made by the researcher, the data that would constitute the research were collected with a scale consisting of 32 questions and applied to the teachers. Open-ended questions were also asked and analyzed to support the quantitative data. Teachers' attitudes towards computer-assisted education were examined in terms of some independent variables (gender, seniority, department graduated, type of job in the institution). In the research, quantitative data obtained with the help of data collection tool were used with percentage, frequency values, independent t-test for binary variables, one-way analysis of variance and Kruskal Wallis techniques for three or more variables. The analysis of the data was made with the Jamovi 2.3.18 statistical program and interpreted in the findings section. In the study, the attitudes of technology and design teachers towards computer-assisted education were described through quantitative data and the relationships between these variables were predicted.
As a result of the research, it has been determined that the attitudes of technology and design course teachers towards computer assisted education and technology are positive. Teachers, who are aware of the importance and benefits of computer-assisted teaching, stated that they mostly use computers for three-dimensional modeling gains. According to the results of the study, while there is no significant difference in the attitudes of technology and design teachers towards computer-assisted education according to gender, department graduated and type of job in the institution; According to the variable of seniority, there was a significant difference in favor of teachers with less seniority. In addition, suggestions were made on the use of computer technology in the development of activities suitable for constructivist teaching.
