In line with the fast advance seen in technology, the use of technological resources in education has come to play an important role in terms of drawing students' attention to the subjects studied in the classroom so that success increases and the knowledge is better internalized. This study was carried out to determine the attitudes of the pre-service teachers from the department of elementary education towards the effects of use of teaching materials; overhead projector and projector; on learning. The study was carried out with 184 senior pre-service teachers, 32 of whom are from the department of science teaching, 70 are from the department of classroom teaching, 46 are from the department of pre-school teaching and 36 are from the department of social studies teaching. The data obtained from the questionnaire used in the study were analyzed through SPSS program package. Independent t-test was used to test whether there is a significant correlation between the pre-service teachers' responses and gender and their background. In addition, One-Way ANOVA was used to test whether there is a significant correlation between student teachers' responses and their departments and some differences are detected with regards to the effects of using overhead projector and projector on learning. According to the findings of the study, the students are found to believe that the use of overhead projector and projector brings some kind of change and variety to the teaching, saves teaching from being monotonous, and contribute to establishing lively, colorful and smooth setting for teaching and learning.
