Abstract

The diversity of temporal needs in the world has increased the people's rate of communication and interaction. Many factors play a role in increasing the rate of communication and interaction. One of these factors is mobile devices. It can be said that various mobile devices have features that affect human life in many dimensions in today's world. Therefore, these devices have a very important place for individual and social sustainability. Mobile phones are the most important of the various mobile devices in the globalizing world. The excessive use of mobile phones has produced the concept of nomophobia, which is a new type of addiction in the world. In this study, based on this type of disorder, it was aimed to determine the metaphorical connotations of preservice teachers regarding the concept of nomophobia. In this study, which was carried out with a qualitative research method and a phenomenological design, the study group members were asked an open-ended question in the form of "Nomophobia is like ……….…… because …………… ." and by which, the metaphorical connotations of the preservice teachers were aimed to be determined. The analysis of their answers revealed that the preservice teachers had remarkable metaphorical connotations regarding the concept of nomophobia. The connotations compiled in the study were combined under certain themes by the researchers and presented in the findings section.
