Abstract

Technological developments have also been effective in the diversification of educational environments. Along with traditional face-to-face education, distance education methods have also started to become widespread with the Information Revolution. Especially during the Covid 19 epidemic, education and training continued through online platforms. Until this date, distance education applications were used in a limited number of private primary and secondary education institutions. For this reason, the number of teachers who had previous knowledge and experience in distance education practices remained extremely low. Therefore, the majority of teachers met with distance education during the pandemic process. This historical pedagogical transformation process is one of the most important breaking points in the history of Turkish and world education. In this research, it will be tried to reveal the opinions of teachers about distance education applications during the Covid 19 pandemic. For this purpose, 10 open-ended questions were asked to the teachers in the study, which was carried out with the phenomenology pattern, which is one of the qualitative research methods. In these questions, teachers were asked about the online platforms used, the educational applications preferred to make the lessons more efficient, their advantages and disadvantages, and whether they meet their learning needs. At the end of the research, most of the teachers stated that face-to-face education is more effective especially in reaching students, but these applications and platforms provide a great advantage especially in order not to interrupt education during the pandemic process.
