Abstract

The aim of the research is to determine the pre-service science teachers’ views related to technology-supported conceptual change activities. The research is a qualitative descriptive study.  Five out of ten pre-service science teachers who participated in technology-supported conceptual change activities were included in the research. The pre-service teachers were firstly informed about the conceptual change activities online, and then they were provided with the opportunity to create technology-supported activities within the scope of the 2018 Science Curriculum. The pre-service science teachers used the "Inspiration" software for concept maps, the "MindManager" software for mind maps, and the "Powtoon" website for concept cartoons and conceptual change texts. Semi-structured online interviews were conducted with the five pre-service science teachers. The interviews were recorded after obtaining the consent of the pre-service teachers. The analysis of the data was carried out based on content analysis. Codes were created and presented in table format as sub-themes based on the responses of the pre-service science teachers. It was concluded that the pre-service science teachers had positive views about conceptual change activities.
