Tarih Öğretimi Bağlamında İnternete Özgü Epistemik Gerekçelendirme Ölçeğinin Türk Kültürüne Uyarlaması
Adaptation of Internet-Specific Epistemic Justification Inventory to Turkish Culture in the Context of History Teaching

Servet ÜZTEMUR [1] , Erkan DİNÇ [2]


Bu araştırmanın amacı “İnternete Özgü Epistemik Gerekçelendirme Ölçeği”ni Türk kültürüne uyarlayarak geçerlik ve güvenilirlik çalışmalarını yapmaktır. İnternetten edinilen bilgilerin kapsamının çok geniş olması nedeniyle, bu araştırmada konu alanı internet üzerinden erişilen tarihsel bilgiler ile sınırlandırılmıştır. Çalışma Uşak ve Necmettin Erbakan Üniversitelerinde 2019-2020 öğretim yılında öğrenimine devam eden rastgele seçilmiş 192 sosyal bilgiler öğretmen adayıyla gerçekleştirilmiştir. Doğrulayıcı faktör analizi ve alfa iç tutarlılık hesaplamaları sonuçları, 12 maddelik ölçeğin üç boyutlu (kişisel gerekçelendirme, çoklu kaynaklar tarafından gerekçelendirme ve otorite tarafından gerekçelendirme) orijinal yapısının Türk kültüründe geçerli ve güvenilir olduğunu ortaya koymuştur. Araştırma sonuçları; internetin bilgi kaynağı olarak kullanıldığı post-truth zamanlarda, gençlerin web ortamında karşılaştıkları bilgi iddialarının doğruluğunu sınama sürecinde benimsedikleri epistemik gerekçelendirme stratejileri ile tarihsel muhakeme ve tarihsel bağlamsallaştırma becerileri bağlamında tartışılmıştır.   

The aim of this research is to adapt the “Internet-Specific Epistemic Justification Inventory” to Turkish culture and conduct validity and reliability tests. Due to the wide scope of knowledge obtained from the internet, the subject focus of this research is limited to historical knowledge accessed via the internet. The study was conducted with the participation of 192 randomly selected prospective social studies teachers continuing their education at Uşak and Necmettin Erbakan Universities in the 2019-2020 academic year. The results of confirmatory factor analysis and alpha internal consistency calculations revealed that the three-dimensional (personal justification, justification by multiple sources and justification by authority) structure of the 12-item inventory is valid and reliable in Turkish culture. The research results were discussed in the context of epistemic justification strategies and historical reasoning and historical contextualization skills adopted by young people in the process of testing the accuracy of knowledge claims they encounter in the web in post-truth times when the internet is used as a source of knowledge.
