Summary


IN-SERVICE TEACHERS’ RESISTANCE TO TECHNOLOGY: A QUALITATIVE META-SYNTHESIS BY ENTREQ STATEMENT (1998-2018)

While the discussions that technology will take over humanity and artificial intelligence will control our lives in the future, it is obvious that technology is with us in all areas of our lives today. It is seen that today's students in generation Z are integrated with technology. Therefore, it is an important professional feature that teachers are expected to use technology effectively in the educational process. The aim of this research is to interpret and discuss the findings of qualitative researches that have put forward teachers' opinions, resistances and suggestions about technology through a new qualitative sytematic research method in education called “meta-synthesis”. As a result of this meta-synthesis research; insufficient time, lack of access to computers-software, inadequate technical and administrative support, teacher beliefs and attitudes, the difficulty of adapting technology to instructional design were reached as the cause of resistance of the teachers. Availability of computers, organization of equipment for the access of everyone, providing tech-expert teachers, collaborative and risk-taking leadership, school leaders supporting innovation, a cohesive framework for facilitating professional development by school districts, empowerment of the teacher beliefs by the policymakers and school leaders were reached as the key concepts to eliminate the resistance.
