Abstract


Passing through critical periods can have an impact on value systems. Our values can change in extraordinary periods such as pandemics. When the COVID-19 pandemic that affect the world is considered as one of these extraordinary situations, passing through this period may have an impact on value systems. This study was conducted to determine whether there was a change in the values of classroom teachers during the lockdown in the pandemic period. Data were collected from 224 teachers using Schwartz's Value Survey. The results of the findings analyzed descriptively were compared with the research findings collected from teacher groups using the same scale before the pandemic in the literature. Conformity was found to be the most important value in this research. Conformity value was ranked fifth, on average, in other studies. 

 

Kritik dönemlerden geçmek, değer sistemlerini etkileyebilir. Pandemi gibi olağanüstü dönemlerde değerlerimiz değişebiliyor. Dünyayı etkisi altına alan COVID-19 pandemisi de bu olağanüstü durumlardan biri olarak değerlendirildiğinde, bu dönemden geçmek değer sistemlerini de etkileyebilir. Bu çalışma, pandemi döneminde karantina döneminde sınıf öğretmenlerinin değerlerinde bir değişiklik olup olmadığını belirlemek amacıyla yapılmıştır. 224 öğretmenden Schwartz Değer Anketi kullanılarak veri toplanmıştır. Betimsel olarak incelenen bulguların sonuçları, literatürde pandemi öncesinde aynı ölçeği kullanarak öğretmen gruplarından toplanan araştırma bulguları ile karşılaştırılmıştır. Bu araştırmada en önemli değerin “uyma” olduğu görülmüştür. Uyma değeri, diğer çalışmalarda ortalama olarak beşinci sırada yer aldığı görülmüştür.
