dc.description.abstract This study examines a sample (N=239) of pre-service teachers' self-reported intention to use technology. The Technology Acceptance Model (TAM) was used as a research framework in which findings contribute to technology acceptance research by demonstrating the suitability of the TAM to explain the intention to use technology among educational users. Using the structural equation modelling for data analysis, a good fit was found for both the measurement and structural models. Overall, the results of this study offer evidence that the TAM is effective in predicting pre-service teachers' intention to use technology. This paper concludes with a discussion of the limitations and recommendations for further study. en
