Cypriot Journal of Educational Sciences Volume 12, Number 3,
The aim of this research is to determine the trends of education technology researches on Constructivist Learning Approach, which were published on database of ScienceDirect between 2010 and 2016. It also aims to guide researchers who will do studies in this field. After scanning the database, 81 articles published on ScienceDirect's data base from January 2010 to December 2016 were examined considering the following criteria in order to serve the purpose of the study; the concepts they deal with, instruments, software, education techniques used in the research, research methods, research designs, data collection instruments, types and sizes of samples, data analysis, the country where it takes place, number of authors, common studies done by researchers from different countries and number of sources. According to the research results, computer-supported education was the most addressed subject in the articles. It was found out that the most frequently used tool was the computer and the most frequently used software was learning management systems in the studies. Cooperative learning technique was the most preferred in terms of the used educational techniques. Quantitative method and survey design came into prominence in the studies. It was figured out about the data collection procedures that questionnaire as a data-collecting tool, university students as the subjects or the participants and descriptive analysis as data analysis method were mostly preferred. It is thought that results obtained will lead other future studies.
