Yildirim, Günseli
Journal on School Educational Technology, v12 n2 p34-43 Sep-Nov 2016
The aim of this study was to determine the opinions of prospective preschool teachers studying in education faculties at Turkey about smart board use for education. To achieve this aim, prospective preschool teachers in the Department of Preschool Teacher Education, DokuzEylül University were asked with five open-ended questions through a semi-structured interview form. This is a qualitative study. Obtained data were analyzed with descriptive analysis and its results were expressed in numbers. The results showed that smart board use turned abstract concepts and subjects into concrete things during the learning process, helped to achieve meaningful learning and encouraged active learning. In addition, most of the prospective preschool teachers noted that they did not have sufficient information and skills about smart board use. In light of these findings, it can be recommended that students and teachers should be offered education about the effective use of smart boards and that smart boards should be available in all classrooms.
