İstanbul Sabahattin Zaim University
Concepts related to information and communication technologies such as technology use and individual innovation have recently become important concepts to increase educational effectiveness. Therefore, this study aims to examine school principals' use of technology and individual innovative behaviours of female teachers. The qualitative research method and phenomenology design were used in the research. The data were collected through semi-structured interviews, and twenty female teachers working in secondary schools in Ümraniye, Üsküdar, and Ataşehir participated in the study. The data were analysed with content analysis. The main themes resulting from the determined codes are ‘technological goals’, ‘pioneering behaviours’, ‘non-innovative behaviours’, ‘creative behaviours’, ‘traditionalist behaviours’, and ‘encouraging behaviours’.
