Online Submission, Paper presented at the 13th IOSTE Symposium, The Use of Science and Technology Education for Peace and Sustainable Development (Kusadasi, Turkey, Sep 21-26, 2008)
It is very important to develop student teachers' skills and knowledge during the pre-service teacher education process. In this study, the effectiveness of the approach in which student teachers' gained the skills of developing and using Teacher Guided Materials (TGMs) based on integration of technology on physics education in Special Teaching Methods Course-II (STMC-II) for pre-service Physics teachers was evaluated. The study was conducted with 33 physics student teachers in KTU. Student teachers were required to develop and present TGMs, which were based on principles of special teaching approaches and techniques and integration of technology through instruction. The data of the study gained from semi-structured interviews conducted with 14 student teachers, observations of the lessons conducted by the each student teacher and document analysis of the student teachers' diaries collected during the term. The student teachers stated that STMC-II was a very helpful experience to gain teaching skills. It is believed that these all activities, which are designed and performed in the classroom by student teachers during STMC-II course, will not only prepare them to their teaching but also help them to gain basic experiences that they will need in their future career. At the end of the process it is concluded that all of the student teachers gained nearly whole defined aims -skills and knowledge- of the STMC-II. The implementation process should be organized very well to have advance of gaining many skills together.
