Abstract

The aim of the study is to adapt the “Maker-Based Technological Pedagogical Content Knowledge” scale developed by Ku, Loh, Lin, and Williams (2021) for pre-service science teachers into Turkish. The study group of the research consists of 188 pre-service science teachers studying at the Department of Science Education at three state universities in Istanbul. This study was carried out using exploratory sequential design, one of the mixed method typologies.  As a result of confirmatory factor analyses, it was seen that the scale, which was adapted into Turkish, consisted of 7 sub-dimensions and 27 items, as in the original. These 7 sub-dimensions consist of Content Knowledge, Pedagogical Knowledge, Technological Knowledge, Pedagogical Content Knowledge, Technological Content Knowledge, Technological Pedagogical Knowledge and Technological Pedagogical Content Knowledge. The Cronbach Alpha Reliability Coefficient of the scale is .948.
