The purpose of this study is to investigate technology integration related issues among Turkish middle school social studies teachers. The researchers administrated a 34-item survey to 259 middle school social studies teachers in Turkey. As indicated in the findings, the most highly identified barriers were external obstacles such as a lack of technology, restricted Internet access, and a lack of administrative and technical support. Moreover, a significant difference existed between teachers who attended technology-related professional development sessions and those who did not.
