Computer Technology Awareness by Elementary School Teachers: A Case Study from Turkey

  title={Computer Technology Awareness by Elementary School Teachers: A Case Study from Turkey},
  author={Askin Asan},
The results revealed that many teachers were not computer users. Many teachers lacked a functional computer literacy foundation upon which to build new technology and skills. Analysis of teachers’ knowledge of computer technologies revealed low levels of technical knowledge, as well as some interesting perceptions of the role of some specific computer-related items. For most teachers, the use of computers and related technologies had not been a routine part of their own educational environment.
