The purpose of this study is to analyze the perceptions of the social science teachers and teacher candidates related to technological, pedagogical and convent knowledge. In accordance with this purpose, semi-structured interviews were executed with six social sciences teachers and six social sciences teacher candidates. A qualitative research design was used in the study. The data were analyzed in the study. Following the interviews, it was found that the perceptions of the social science teacher candidates related to convent knowledge were lower while those of the teachers were higher. The teacher candidates had higher perceptions related to using technology in education while the teachers had lower perceptions levels. Some suggestions were given in order to provide complete integration of technological pedagogical and content knowledge (TPACK) to the teachers and teacher candidates.
