The aim of this study is to investigate the articles search in the Scopus database in the context of “pre-school education” and “instructional Technologies” between the years 1976-2018. Content analysis evaluation criteria; the research model, the publication status of the research in journals, the number of publications by country, the year of publication, the researchers, the distribution of the keywords used by the researchers, the institutions that the researchers are affiliated with, the type of research done and the fields of research of the studies. When the results of the research are examined; More experimental research models related to "pre-school education" and "instructional technologies" were used. While it is seen that there is no journal related to the field, it has been seen that the related publications reached the highest point between 2010 and 2012, there is no specific researcher concentrated in the field, and “Social Learning Theory” comes at the beginning of the most used keywords. It was observed that the research was not based on a specific institution and the most research was realized in the USA according to the distribution of countries.
