The purpose of this research is to find out “The reflection of organizational culture on technology usage in secondary education classes”. This is a case study which is a qualitative method. 10 teachers were chosen as participants via chain sampling. The data were collected by means of open-ended questions asked at semi-structured interviews. The researchers recorded the interviewees’ responses by taking notes. The data was processed via content and thematic analyses. Tables were used to present the data. The findings of the study indicate that the school leaders are not able to find efficient solutions to problems about in-class technology usage. It is also determined that virus programs on computers are not up to date. Teachers do not prefer using technology in their classes since they are anxious about falling behind the annual plan and the classes are over-crowded. Another noteworthy finding is that even though some teachers use technology for educational purposes, help each other and share their materials, there are some teachers who do not act responsibly concerning the usage and protection of the devices.
