Abstract

The aim of this study is to examine the effect of school administrators' tendencies towards change, working in primary schools, on 21st century skills. The research is an example of the relational screening model. In this context, the sample of the research consists of 148 school administrators working in primary schools in 5 districts of the TRNC, namely Nicosia, Girne, Famagusta, Güzelyurt and Lefke. The research was evaluated with 107 people from 148 managers, with 95% confidence level and 5% sampling error. In this study, the "Multidimensional 21st Century Skills Scale" was used with the permission of the authors to measure the 21st century skills of school administrators and their tendencies towards change. In addition, the scale named “Adaptation of the change tendencies scale for teachers” was used. As a result of the research, it was revealed that there were significant correlations between the scores obtained from the sub-dimension of resistance to change in the Managers' Tendency to Change Scale and the scores acquired from the Multidimensional 21st Century Skills Scale and the Information and Technology Literacy Skills sub-dimension in the scale. These correlations are positive, and as the scores obtained from the sub-dimension of resistance to change in the Managers' Tendency to Change Scale increase, the scores obtained from the Multidimensional 21st Century Skills Scale and from the Information and Technology Literacy Skills sub-dimension in the scale also increase.
