The aim of this work is assessing the use of digital technology in relation to the creative thinkingprocess in Interior Design education. For this purpose, the effects of digital technologies on thecreative design development process in interior design education were examined throughstudent experiences. Fourth grade students (39 people) in Interior Design department of a stateuniversity located in the Central Anatolia Region in Turkey are the participants of the study.Identification of participants; being volunteer to attend; taking the basic design / art education,computer-aided design and final interior design project courses. Torrance is an important personwho contributes to literacy in the measurement of creativity and in this research open-endedquestions were asked to the students according to four elements (fluency, flexibility, originalityand enrichment) defined by Torrance's creativity. In the research, phenomenological approachwas used from qualitative research methods and data were analyzed by content data analysis.According to the findings, it has been detected that students use digital technologies for researchon internet, technical drawings in computer, making 3D visualizations and preparing documentswith text-image support. As a results enhance design alternatives, improve the quality of interiordesign and ease the design intervention are the positive consequences of the use of digitaltechnology. Not to benefit from the positive effects of hand drawing and the use of ready-madematerials to destroy the original design are the negative consequences of the use of digitaltechnology.
