In line with the recent increase in social interest in the 4th Industrial Revolution, the demand for various types of IT-based education, such as AI and robots, is also increasing in the science classes of schools. The physics subject in secondary school has already been revised from the 2009 National Curriculum so that this IT-based modern science and technology can be meaningfully fused in line with the development of modern physics. However, foundations for such convergent education in teacher education or re-education in schools, are still insufficient. In this study, an IT convergence-based physics education training course developed for teacher re-education was conducted, and based on the results, the teacher's perception on how IT convergence-based physics education is applicable was investigated. The results are reported based on the positive and the negative responses from teachers.
