In this descriptive study, designed as a qualitative study, data was collected using the scanning technique. Accordingly, by using the purposeful sampling method, a total of 148 primary studies were reached by scanning the National Thesis Center, ULAKBİM Dergipark, Google Scholar, ULAKBİM TR Index, WOS (Web of Science) and ProQuest databases. 27 studies that did not meet the keyword, content, language, time period and publication type criteria determined in line with the purpose of the research were not included in the research. The 121 primary scientific studies that constitute the data set of this study were analyzed by content analysis method using the document analysis technique, and the results are presented in tables. The results of the research reveal that the majority of included primary studies were published in 2022 (n=27), predominantly as research articles (n=63), utilizing qualitative methods the most (51%), with Çanakkale Onsekiz Mart University having the highest number of theses (n=5), Turkish Studies being the most prolific journal (n=14), the most frequently encountered keyword being Web 2.0 tools (n=19), the predominant topic being applications aimed at enhancing writing skills (n=13), and the most commonly used data collection tool being documents (n=23). Based on these results, a contribution to the literature has been made by interpreting how the use of technology in teaching Turkish to foreigners has developed and what is needed.
