Abstract:


The main purpose of this research is to determine teachers' views on the project process within the scope of using Web 2.0 tools in education. In accordance with this purpose, participant teachers were asked to express their training expectations before the training and training views after the training. Additionally, teachers were asked which Web 2.0 tools they liked the most. Within the scope of the project entitled “Education Bag: The Use of Web 2.0 Tools in Education” the research where teachers' views about the process were taken was conducted in accordance with the qualitative research method. 148 teachers from 21 different cities participated to this TÜBİTAK project. The online structured form prepared for the purpose of the research was shared with the participating teachers. This form included three questions as (i) teachers’ expectations from training, (ii) training efficiency and (iii) which Web 2.0 tools they like during the training process. Data was analysed with content analysis. Data obtained from the content analysis were discussed under two sub-titles as expectations related to education and post-education views. Participant teachers’ training expectations were gathered under four different themes. These themes are teacher, course, education and student. Participant teachers’ post-training views were also shaped under four themes. These themes are training, content, teacher and instructors. Majority of the participant teachers liked online test preparation tool Quizizz most. Second most liked Web 2.0 tool is Metaverse that can develop augmented reality applications.
