The era we live in has a quality allowing all new fields and different uses of media and technology. In this unavoidable development and transformation, the individual's attitude and usage of these contents also varies. It is important to focus on some concepts and relations before we talk about our study including these reviews The students of the Faculty of Education, Fine Arts Education, Arts and Crafts Department forms the universe of the research and randomly selected 96 volunteer students from the students of University Fine Arts Education Arts and Crafts Department form the sample. The age average of the sample in the study was 20.30 (n=96, ss=1.98). The average daily computer usage of the sample is 5.36 hours (n=96,ss=4.47). SPSS v21.0 Package Program was used in the analysis of the data. Before the statistical analysis of the data, normality tests were applied. It has been determined whether the parametric tests meet the preconditions with these normality tests. Accordingly, arithmetic mean, percentage, frequency, t-test for independent sample and one-way analysis of variance (ANOVA) tests and their non-parametric equivalents were used. Spearman rank difference correlation coefficient was calculated for the correlation. Significance was taken as .05. In the light of the results, we see that the increase in the daily internet usage time of the students makes them develop positive attitudes towards technology. The reason for this is that students using the internet more are more familiar with technology and use it more in daily life. More internet usage and a positive view of technology progress in direct proportion with students.
