In this direction, data were collected from as many different teachers as possible, taking into account their age, field of study, school type and gender. The research was carried out with 32 teachers. The data were collected through face-to-face interviews using a semi-structured interview form consisting of four questions about personal information and 11 questions about the metaverse.
