Teacher training is one of the most important factors that determines teachers' use of educational computing in classroom. On Average five to seven-years of training is necessary for a teacher to become a confident user of educational technology (Hardy, 98). However, most teachers do not have enough computer skills (Dupagne, 92) and feel they have not taken adequate training to integrate computer in their classroom. The purpose of this paper is to describe a teacher technology-training model for a private high school in Turkey that incorporates the notion of instructional design and systems thinking. The training model is structured around the generic ADDIE model, which is Analyze, Design, Development, Implementation and Evaluation. However, the model provided in this paper is situation-specific and has additional elements to satisfy the need for in-service technology teacher training.
