World Journal of Education, v8 n3 p149-161 2018
While philosophy has confronted us as a concept that has taken place in every age of the thinking adventure of the humankind, philosophical considerations have been influential on all elements of human creation. One of these influence areas is education studies. Education has been influenced by the philosophy of education, which has occurred more specifically than philosophy. Educational leaders and pre-service teachers should notice the availability of using this influence and the educational philosophy as a tool. This research was conducted in order to determine the perception of educational philosophy in the industrial age 4.0 and to find the educational philosophy productivity of pre-service teachers. The study group includes 111 pre-service teachers who take the training philosophy course in the 2nd class level in the Faculty of Education of Mustafa Kemal University in Turkey. 72 of these pre-service teachers are female, and 39 are male. This research where quantitative and qualitative data are used together is a mixed educational research. In the study, a 25-question test developed by the researcher and a semi-structured interview form consisting of 3 questions has been used to collect data. While the pre-test and post-test studies were conducted with the test which is the data collection tool, the data were analyzed by using the descriptive analysis and the content analysis of the data obtained from the interview form. When the findings of the study were taken into consideration, it was found that there was a significant difference between pre-test scores and post-test scores of the pre-service teachers participating in the research. The teaching process of the training philosophy course given has been found to be successful. It has been concluded that pre-service teachers have expressed the philosophy and education relationship with human-based views. It has been found that pre-service teachers prefer the "progressive training philosophy" if they want to make a new educational design. However, it has been determined that pre-service teachers did not have an idea about technology and technological developments in the industrial age 4.0.
