ABSTRACT

Planning is a concept that takes place all throughout one's life. People plan their education, work, private lives, and careers; in other words, they plan their entire lives to achieve specific desired outcomes. Not only do individuals plan which schools they will attend, but also where they should live and which jobs they should take. Similar to life in general, one's educational career also is executed according to a plan. Although the educational planning was not based on a written text until the 1960s, the notion of education planning has existed since education itself. Technological inventions have been benefited from. Although it is seen, the differences of development of technology in every age, has not neglected to integrate the field of education. Technology has continued its development from duplicators and typewriters of yesterday to the smart boards and tablet computers of today. It is clear that future technological innovations will continue to find a place in education as they appear. The purpose of this study is to examine the planning of EIN (Education IT Network) integration via document analysis, part of the FATIH Project, to determine what problems exist in order not only to make a better educational plan, but also to emphasize the importance of having a good plan so that one may make proper use of EIN in lessons. Additionally, five ITC (Information Technology Counseling) teachers were interviewed in the study. These teachers were asked to share their ideas about the development of EIN and its integration into the subjects. The results indicate that EIN is a rapidly growing and developing application. It is additionally believed that EIN has reached such a level that can complete with the similar international applications.
