Silman, Fatos; Gundogdu, Kerim
Online Submission, Paper presented at the International Educational Technology (IETC) Conference (7th, Nicosia, Turkish Republic of Northern Cyprus, May 3-5, 2007)
The aim of this study is to examine the perceptions of the classroom teachers on the computer use in the TRNC schools. A questionnaire was applied to 84 classroom teachers in 5 schools in Nicosia, the capital city of the TRNC. The answers to the first part of the questionnaire with five subsections were analysed. Descriptive statistics were used for the analysis. The findings showed that teachers in the TRNC highly believed in the benefits of computers in education. They agreed with the ideas that computers increased student motivation and improved students' skills and knowledge. Teachers were quite positive about computer-aided education and its application. Teachers also believed in the benefits of computers in increasing the learning levels of students. The ideas that teachers disagreed were that computers harmed learning when used in lessons and computers were very complicated to use. (Contains 5 tables.)
