The purpose of this study is to investigate the current state of ICT perceptions, competencies, and the way of acquiring ICT competencies of K-12 teachers. The primary design model of this study is a mixed method approach which utilized a questionnaire and interviews. The questionnaire was distributed to 69 schools in 35 provinces in 12 regions of Turkey with a representative sampling method. The questionnaire was distributed to the 3,353 K-12 teachers requesting their participation in completing the questionnaire, and 1,429 teachers responded the questionnaire. For interviews, 6 K-12 teachers of the target population were chosen from Ankara first through convenience sampling and then purposeful sampling methods by using the criterion technique. The findings indicated that majority of K-12 teachers believe that learning and teaching with ICT can be more effective than without ICT, and they are competent in only basic ICT applications.
