Özet:It was aimed in this study to examine the challenges that teachers meet in implementation of project-based learning approach in information and technology courses. The study group of the research was composed of 144 IT teachers who are working actively in Hatay, İstanbul, Sakarya, Kahramanmaraş and Şanlıurfa provinces in the 2012 2013 academic year who had been determined by random sampling method. "Implementation Difficulty Scale in Project-Based Learning" was used in the study. The difficulties are grouped under four headings including dimension of students, dimension of program, dimension of physical environment and dimension of teacher in the scale. Descriptive statistics and one-way analysis of variance (ANOVA) were used in analysis of data and t-test and Tukey HSD test were used for the individual groups. At the end of the scale, it was determined that there is no statistically significant difference in teachers' opinions in terms of gender, seniority, higher education institutions that they had graduated from and provinces that they are still actively working but significant differences cannot be determined and detected in dimensions of the scale, too.
