Assessment of the answers given for these questions was obtained using the document analysis method, while performing frequency & percentage analysis. Considering the findings obtained from the research, it can be said that the senior students in French Teaching Programme were familiar with the technological tools & materials, and that they developed positive attitudes with regards to the use of these tools & materials. It was observed that the main tools & materials that are frequently used in class were computers, smart boards, and correspondingly the Office programs.
