Okul öncesi öğretmenlerinin teknoloji kullanımına ilişkin tutumlarının incelenmesi, onların verdikleri eğitimin niteliğini belirlemek bakımından kritik önem taşır. Olumsuz tutumlar onların teknoloji kullanımını engellerken, pozitif tutumlar öğretmenlerin teknolojiyi daha etkili kullanmalarına neden olur. Bu araştırmanın amacı Türkiye’de eğitimde teknoloji kullanımına ilişkin okul öncesi öğretmenlerinin tutumlarını araştırmaktır. Araştırmanın amacı çok sayıda okul öncesi öğretmenine ulaşarak onların küçük çocukların eğitiminde teknoloji kullanımına ilişkin tutumlarını araştırmak olduğu için yöntem olarak survey araştırması kullanılmıştır. Katılımcılar Güneydoğu Anadolu Bölgesi’nde bir şehirde çalışan 217 okul öncesi öğretmenidir. Katılımcı öğretmenler okul öncesi eğitiminde teknoloji kullanımına ilişkin tutumlarını araştıran bir anketi doldurmuşlardır. Verilerin analizinde factor analizi ve frekans tablolarıyla diğer betimleyici istatistik yöntemler kullanılmıştır. Bulgular, katılımcıların önemli bir bölümünün küçük çocukların eğitiminde teknoloji kullanımına ilişkin olumlu tutumlara sahip olduklarını göstermiştir
Exploring early childhood teachers’ attitudes towards technology use is critical to define the characteristics of their teaching practices. Negative attitudes may hinder their use, while positive attitudes increase the effectiveness of their use of technology. The purpose of this study is to investigate early childhood teachers’ attitudes related to technology use in Turkey. This study employed a survey research design where the aim was to reach a large group of participants to examine early teachers’ attitudes toward using technology in teaching young children. The participants were 217 early childhood teachers working in public schools in a southeastern city. They were given a questionnaire containing items exploring their attitudes related to technology use in early childhood education. Factor and frequency analyses and other descriptive statistics techniques were utilized to analyze the data. Findings indicated that the participants in general hold positive attitudes toward using technology in teaching young children
