The purpose of this research is to determine the problems of primary teachers encountered and suggesting some solutions to problems about computer technologies. The data of the study were collected by means of interview method with 5 open-ended questions which were prepared by the researchers. The data were analyzed using descriptive analysis method. The findings indicated that teachers usually preferred not to use technological devices. In light of the findings of the study, it seems that the problems encountered by the teachers in relation to the use of computer technologies result from lack of adequate knowledge, and shortage of technical personnel and hardware.
