Abstract (2. Language): 
Utilizing a systems approach by Toci and Peck (1998), this study is designed to offer some strategies to facilitate teachers’ technology use. The present study was conducted in a public elementary school in Ankara, Turkey and the participants involved all the teachers and administrators from this elementary school, including 41 teachers and 3 administrators. The data was collected by the use of multiple methods, involving surveys, interviews and observations. At the beginning of the study, a teacher survey was administered to identify the current state of technology use in the school. After defining the current state of technology use, the researcher took the opinions of the school staff about the most appropriate professional development strategies. Then, using a systems approach by Toci and Peck (1998) as a framework, these professional development strategies were implemented with the help of school administrators. These strategies might be helpful for the school principals and teachers in their struggle during the technology integration process. Moreover, the present study provides suggestions to the policy makers about how to integrate technologies into curriculum and support the schools in technology integration process.
Abstract (Original Language): 
Bu çalışmada, öğretmenlerin teknoloji kullanımını arttırmak amacı ile Toci ve Peck (1998) tarafından önerilen sitemik yaklaşım prensipleri kullanılarak çeşitli profesyonel gelişim stratejileri öne sürülmüştür. Çalışma Ankara’daki bir ilköğretim okulunda yapılmış olup, çalışmanın katılımcıları 41 öğretmen ve 3 okul yöneticisinden oluşmaktadır. Çalışma verileri anket, görüşme ve gözlem gibi bir çok farklı yöntemler kullanılarak toplanmıştır. Çalışmanın başında, okuldaki mevcut teknoloji kullanım durumunun belirlenmesi amacı ile öğretmenlere bir anket uygulanmıştır. Daha sonra, okul yöneticileri ve öğretmenlerin de fikirleri alınarak çeşitli profesyonel gelişim stratejileri tasarlanmıştır. Bu stratejiler, okul yöneticilerinin de yardımı ile uygulanmıştır. Bu çalışmada uygulanan stratejiler teknoloji entegrasyonu sürecinde yaşanan sıkıntıların üstesinden nasıl gelinebileceği konusunda okul yöneticileri ve öğretmenlere yardımcı olacaktır. Ayrıca, bu çalışma, teknolojinin müfredata ne şekilde entegre edileceği ve okulların teknoloji entegrasyonu konusunda nasıl desteklenebileceği konularında politika yapıcılara da önerilerde bulunmaktadır.
