Abstract

This study examined pre-service teachers' self-reported intention to use technology. One hundred fifty-seven participants completed a survey questionnaire measuring their responses to six constructs from a research model that integrated the Technology Acceptance Model (TAM) and Theory of Planned Behavior (TPB). Structural equation modeling was used as the main technique for data analysis. This study contributes to the growing interest among researchers in using models to explain users' intention to use technology. The results of this study showed that the TAM constructs were significant in explaining pre-service teachers' intention to use technology. However, the core constructs of the TPB, subjective norm and perceived behavioral control (represented by facilitating conditions in this study) required further examination. Overall, this study indicated that attitude toward computer use had the largest effect on the intention to use technology. (Contains 3 figures and 6 tables.)
