Özet

This paper presents the relationship between pre-service teachers' information literacy skills and their attitudes towards distance education. Two questionnaires were administered to 235 pre-service teachers enrolled in the department of primary school teaching, the department of science teaching and the department of Turkish language teaching at Kirikkale University in Turkey in order to examine their attitudes and their literacy skills. Results of this study show that there is no significant relationship between participants' information literacy levels and their attitudes towards distance learning. (C) 2009 Elsevier Ltd.
