ABSTRACT
The first aim of this study was to determine undergraduate students' attitudes on the use of computers in education. A questionnaire as survey was administered to 156 undergraduate students in two departments - the Department of Educational Sciences, and the Computer mid Educational Technologies - at Canakkale Onsekiz Matt University during the fall 2003 semester. A second aim of the study was to determine whether there were differences in attitude between the two groups on the use of computers in education. Of the 156 students, 90 were from the Department of Educational Sciences and 66 were from the Department of Computer and Educational Technologies. According to the top 5 attributions tanked by students, computers: 1-Individualize learning, 2-Are self-paced, 3- Allow students to work privately, 4-Are fun and entertaining, and, 5-Are excellent for drill and practice. These attributions were the reasons of using the computers in education. We found 9 attributions in which there was a statistically significant difference between the two groups.
