Supporting Teacher Students Use of Information and Communication Technology in Education
The use of information and communication technology (ICT) is nowadays supposed to be a routine in teachers' everyday work rather than a haphazard event. In practice, however, there is a gap between the goals and everyday school life. Therefore, in order to affect teacher students' willingness to use ICT in education, more attention should be paid to their learning experiences. In this research, teacher students' attitudes toward the use of ICT in education were studied before and after a web-based course. Based on students' learning experiences, attitudes and evaluations of the web-based learning environment dimensions of a successful web-based learning environment were examined. According to the results, the dimensions of a learning environment that encourage teacher students' to use ICT in education are `meaningfulness', `accuracy', `learnability' and `individuality'.
