Abstract

This study investigated the computer self-efficacy of Turkish prospective physical education teachers. The research group consisted of 173 prospective physical education teachers. In the study “Computer Self-Efficacy Perception Scale” was used as data collection tool. Results indicated that prospective physical education teachers obtained high computer self-efficacy scores. Prospective physical education teachers’ computer self-efficacy was also examined according to their gender and class year no significant difference was found. In the study it has also found that no significant correlation between prospective physical education teachers’ computer self-efficacies and their ages. In addition there was significant difference in the scale of computer self-efficacy perception based on the owner of a computer.
