Abstract

This research is conducted to obtain the thoughts of state high school administrators to determine the obstacles that they are exposed to while using technology and attempting to integrate technology into their schools. The research is carried out through using the qualitative research design 'phenomenology'. The sample group of this research, which uses qualitative scanning methods, consists of 14 school administrators in North Cyprus during the academic year of 2015-2016. The sample group is identified using "snowball sampling method". The researcher has developed an interview form called 'Interview Form for the Evaluation of Technology Use by School Administrators’. The acquired data has been put through 'categorical analysis' which is one of the content analysis methods. The qualitative data analysis program NVIVO 11.0 has been used for categorizing and coding the data. It was found that school administrators are not anxious concerning the use of technology at school but they fail to integrate the technology into the class.
