In Turkey the Ministry of National Education made the software DynEd compulsory in state primary education from the 4th to 8th grades in 2006. In this study, EFL teachers’ attitudes towards the “DynEd” were investigated. A descriptive research study was conducted with 121 teachers of English working at different primary schools and using DynEd in their lessons in 10 different cities in Turkey. Data for this study were collected through a questionnaire which was used to find out the participants’ attitudes and a semi-structured interview which was held with participants to support the results of the questionnaire and to identify the factors that make teachers abstain from using the DynEd. Questionnaire was analyzed by using SPSS 11.5 statistical program. Interviews were analyzed qualitatively using content analysis. The results of this study revealed that the teachers’ attitudes towards DynEd were mildly positive but their attitudes towards CALL were very positive. The results of the regression analysis showed that computer knowledge has no effect on teachers’ attitudes towards DynEd. The results indicated that there were some factors that make teachers abstain from using the DynEd.
