Abstract

The hot debate of integrating technology into instruction has captured the interest of the world in the context of 21st century education. A considerable amount of effort has been presented in order to incorporate technology into education. In this respect, attitudes have been considered as a good indicator of the tendency to implement technology into instruction. Therefore, the aim of this study is to investigate the attitudes of Turkish English as a foreign language (EFL) student teachers at a major state university in Turkey towards technology use in language learning and teaching. Using a mixed methods approach, 98 student teachers participated in the study. The attitude towards technology scale developed by Yavuz (2005) and focus group interview were used to collect data from the participants. The findings indicate that the student teachers have highly positive attitudes towards the use of technology in language learning and teaching. Some pedagogical implications and suggestions for student teachers, teacher trainers and schools were provided for future development.
