The interaction of education and technology affects the developments occurring in two areas and the development in education increases the speed of technological developments. Educational technology is the functionalization of the scientific knowledge produced in educational sciences and its application into practice. In this research, the content analysis of the studies conducted in Turkey and other countries in the last 5 years is presented in order to determine the current trends in Educational Technology Research Studies. Within the scope of the purposive sample, the studies published between 2015 and 2020 in the field of Educational Technology Research Studies and included in the databases and journals were examined and interpretations were made. Fifteen research criteria were determined within the context of content analysis. These criteria are as follows: index, country, university, department, year of publication, number of authors, research area, method, educational level, sample group, sample number, data collection method, number of bibliographies, analysis techniques and research trends. SPSS 24 program was used in the analysis of the data and the obtained data were presented in the related tables. The data were interpreted based on percentage and frequency. After making general explanations under the tables, the similarities and differences in the studies were analyzed in detail using a meta-analysis method. As a result, it was revealed that the most emphasized issue within the scope of the research area is the adequacy of using Educational Technologies.
