Instructional Use of Information and Communication Technologies Teachers Resistance to the Use of New Technologies

In the present day, the use of information technologies in businesses and industry has increased quickly and extensively. These developments in information and communication technologies have made it compulsory for students to use technologies to be successful members of the knowledge-based world. New technologies have the potential to support education through the curricula and help individuals to adopt the new demands of today’s business and industry. However, many teachers still do not integrate these tools in their instruction. As a result, the use of high-level technology is still unexpectedly low. This paper seeks out the attitudes and opinions of teachers about the implementation of new technologies in their classrooms. The aim of this paper is to discover the information technologies that teachers are using and how often they are using them. The participants of the study were public school teachers in Turkey. Data were collected by using a questionnaire. The questionnaire included questions related to demographic characteristics of teachers and the availability of information technologies in the school used for teaching. It is expected that the findings of this research would find data currently not available to educators and education policy makers. The information obtained from this research would also be functional for teacher educators to improve teacher training programs to facilitate the needs of teachers

Using tag similarity in SVD-based recommendation systems
Osmanli, Osman Nuri; Toroslu, İsmail Hakkı (2011-12-01)
Data analysis has become a very important area for both companies and researchers as a consequence of the technological developments in recent years. Companies are trying to increase their profit by analyzing the existing data about their customers and making decisions for the future according to the results of these analyses. Parallel to the need of companies, researchers are investigating different methodologies to analyze data more accurately with high performance. In this paper, we adopted free-formatte...
Opportunities and barriers of architect led design build projects
Deniz, Ayça; Elias Özkan, Soofia Tahira; Department of Building Science in Architecture (2012)
From past to today, technological developments have resulted in new systems in parallel with digital age. Innovations have been started to be replaced with the traditional solutions. Standardizations have also started to be renewed in accordance with the high technology and complexity of the projects. Under these circumstances, design and construction activities have been separated in the construction industry. As a result, alternative project delivery systems have been developed and selecting the right del...
Unmanned aerial vehicle based visualization of deep excavations using game engines
Teke, Türker; Pekcan, Onur; Department of Civil Engineering (2016)
In the last two decades, the advancements in monitoring tools and growing use of information technologies lead to better visualization of construction sites. The challenge in this field is to develop an extensively capable tool for safety check, progress monitoring and quality control. In this sense, Geotechnical Engineers need a comprehensive understanding of field conditions, which includes topography, soil conditions, effect of nearby structures, etc. In this study, game engines are proposed as visualiza...
Breadth and Depth of Main Technology Fields: An Empirical Investigation Using Patent Data
Özman, Müge (Science And Technology Policies Research Center, Middle East Technical University (Ankara, Turkey), 2007)
Recently work on technological change has emphasized the importance and implications of di§erent knowledge bases among industries in terms of innovative potential. In some industries, products and processes have become more complex, as well as there appears to be increased convergence in some market segments. Although increasing attention has been given to features of knowledge bases, there have been limited empirical research on how to measure them. In this paper a method is proposed to measure empirically...

With the rapid growth of the information technology in several areas, providing security of those systems has gained more importance. As a result of this development in information technology, the complexity of cyber-attacks has also significantly increased. Therefore, traditional security tools such as Signature-based Intrusion Detection Systems (SIDS) have become insufficient for detecting new attacks. Intrusion Detection Systems (IDS) are used to monitor network traffic and capture malicious traffic. Tra...
