Regarding the fact that technology has been developing rapidly, it is actively used in educational institutions. It has a great number of benefits. It has become inevitable to associate conceptual change texts (CCT) with technology. In this study, electronic conceptual change texts (ECCT), were designed in order to eliminate misconceptions on fractions and to strengthen the effective teaching by creating a different point of view. These texts were presented to 12 teachers, who work at different secondary schools and interviews were carried out with them.
