Ulusoy, Mustafa
Turkish Online Journal of Educational Technology - TOJET, v4 n4 Article 6 p37-46 Oct 2005
In this study, the quality of the computer and Internet based social studies course was investigated. A case study design was chosen to understand, a) how computers are used in the eighth grade classroom, b) what the students' and teachers' perceptions are about the advantages and problems of using computers. Qualitative data sources showed that students have positive perceptions about computers and the Internet. Results also indicated that lower level students have attention problems and do not have good study discipline on computers.
