Principals have an important role in the formation of an effective school climate…
Assist. Prof. Fatma Köprülü made the following statements regarding her presentation; “The main purpose of this research is to examine the views of teachers and administrators about the organizational level of schools. For this purpose, the opinions of teachers and administrators were obtained at the 10th, 11th and 12th levels of the schools that carry out all official and private college programs. As a result of this qualitative research, it was concluded that principals had a great role in the formation of an effective school climate. For this reason, it can be said that school principals should be able to define the goals of the school well and keep the relationship between school stakeholders in balance. It was concluded that the right organization had a positive effect on the academic achievement of the students.

Using New Technological Devices and Applications in Second Language Learning Has a Positive Impact…
Lecturer Seda Çakmak said, “New technological devices and applications have been integrated into the second language learning process in order to follow the rapid developments in technology. As this new generation of students is called a digital literate, technology helps to increase students’ motivation to learn a second language. English preparatory schools have integrated modern technological devices and practices into the teaching process, making the learning environment easier for students. Thus, an online application such as Edmodo is widely used by English teachers in the second language process. According to the results of the study, it was observed that the new technological devices and applications in the second language learning encourage teachers to develop new teaching methods both in teaching and learning process. In addition, Edmodo’s use in second language learning has had significant impacts. In addition, the students who participated in the study claimed that they could have fun while learning because it was easy to access the course content at any time. In addition, the results indicate that the factor of using Edmodo while learning English as a second language was extremely positive. Another strength of using Edmodo is that the students emphasize that they are very happy to be in the same environment with their teachers and especially to try to write academic writing with their teachers. ”

Use of Mobile Devices Increases Academic Success…
Assist. Prof. Dr. Fatoş Köprülü, Seda Çakmak and Arhun Ersoy made the following statements regarding the joint article; “Technology has caused changes in education as well as in every field. In particular, it is possible to define mobile learning tools as an effective learning and teaching model that makes learning possible anytime and anywhere. The aim of the study is to reveal the opinions of the English preparatory school administrators about the use of mobile devices. The results of the study showed that the use of printed textbooks and mobile devices both in the classroom and outside the classroom increases academic success. ”
