Abstract

The rapid spread of information with the wide use of the printing press has gained momentum in the 21st century as digital texts have become widespread. Reading is among the major abilities educated individuals are expected to hold and Turkish language teachers are looked to in the acquisition of this ability. Besides, computer technologies teachers are expected to teach how to use digital devices. To fulfill this duty, they are required to have developed a high level of digital literacy. The present study aims to determine and compare the perceptions of prospective teachers of computer technologies and Turkish languages. This descriptive study follows a survey model.. The population of the study comprises the students at a university located in western Turkey and the sample consists of the first-, second-, third-, and fourth-year prospective teachers of Turkish Language and Computer Technologies. The results revealed that the students in the department of Turkish Language Teaching and of Computer Technologies Teaching considered that they were sufficient enough in the attitudinal, technical, cognitive, and social sub-dimensions and differences were observed only in the sociability sub-dimension to favor the male students. Interdepartmental differences were observed in terms of the attitude and sociability sub-domains in favor of computer technologies students and statistically significant differences were found between the scores concerning the freshman and senior undergraduates of both departments.

Keywords: Prospective Turkish language teacher, prospective computer technologies teacher, digital literacy
