The purpose of this study was to determine the status of preservice IT teachers' technorealism in respect to class, gender and technology using the competencies. For the purpose of study, researchers developed a questionnaire consisting of three section and 23 items. The questionnaire was developed at Anadolu University, Faculty of Education, Computer Education and Instructional Technology with 120 IT preservice teachers at 2010-2011 academic year. One-way ANOVA, independent sample t-test and descriptive statistics were used in analysis of the data obtained in this study. Research results show that IT preservice teachers have high levels of optimism against technology, but have low levels of technorealism. However, it has been found that male preservice IT teachers are more technorealis than female preservice teachers. As a result, based on preservice teachers' levels of technorealism, some practical implications and recommendations for future research are presented. (Abstract provided by the authors).
