Technological tools, which meet the needs of the society, have become more addictive for people with the rapid development of technology. These tools have also been used in the field of education and improved through the Internet where there is continuous information exchange. Educators needed the attitudes of the students towards technological tools, especially the Internet, and have developed scales in various structures. The aim of this study is to develop a "the scale of attitude towards technology" in order to assess the attitudes of pre-service chemistry teachers towards technological tools. In the light of the examined data, a 5-point Likert type scale consisting of 50 items was developed and administered to 162 students, who formed the sampling. At the end of the analysis, a scale with a reliability coefficient of 0,8668 consisting of 19 items and 5 subscales called "not using technological tools in education, using technological tools in education, the effects of technology in educational life, teaching how to use technological tools and evaluating technological tools."
