This study determined the viewpoints of teachers from different branches on using the interactive boards placed in classrooms in high schools, which are expected to replace the classical boards in the context of FATIH Project by the Ministry of National Education. Single Review Model was used in the present study where 21 teachers participated from different branches of high schools and the installation of interactive boards was completed in Fall Season of 2013 to 2014 Academic Year. The data of the study were collected by using the Liquid Crystal Display (LCD) panel interactive board attitude scale consisting of 10 questions. The data were examined by using descriptive and content analysis methods and the findings were listed and tabulated according to the questions of the scale. When the results were analyzed, it was observed that the teachers who participated in the study made use of the LCD panel interactive boards technologies frequently in their classes for educational activities such as presentation of slides and digital books or showing of films, videos, pictures, etc. Despite some infrastructural problems and lack of software, they stated that the advantages brought by the use of interactive boards in education were more than the drawbacks, and it was adopted by almost all teachers. However, in order to place the use of interactive boards in the desired level for all teachers, more than one in-service training are needed to cover the needs that are determined in the present study.

Key words: FATIH project, interactive board, teacher’s attitudes.
