The study included a total of a total of 42 geography teachers employed in Karabuk city centre and its districts in 20015-2015 education year. The data of the study was gathered though Technological Pedagogical Content Knowledge (TPCK) developed by Pamuk, Ergun, Cakir, Yilmaz ve Ayas (2012). Frequency and percentage values along with Kolmogorov-Smirnov (K-S) test, Mann Whitney U test and Kruskal Wallis H test were used to analyse the data of the current study. The results of the study revealed that the technological pedagogical content knowledge of geography teachers was not enough.
