Abstract:
The aim of this study is to examine the relationship between teachers' lifelong learning tendencies and their attitudes towards technology use in education, and to determine the different variables that affect them. The participants of the research are teachers. In the study, the Mann Whitney U test was used for the variables of gender, education level and the frequency of reading books, journals, newspapers and articles, and Kruskal Wallis H test was used for the variables of professional seniority and school level to determine the lifelong learning tendencies of teachers and their attitudes towards technology use in education. It was concluded that teachers' lifelong learning tendencies differ significantly according to gender, level of learning, and frequency of reading books, magazines, newspapers and articles, and there is a significant difference in the factor of openness to development according to professional seniority. No significant difference was found according to the school level. It was concluded that teachers' attitudes towards the use of technology in education differ significantly according to gender and education level in some factors.
