Abstract

Pre-service teachers’ self-reported intentions to use information technology were studied. Two hundred and sixty-four participants completed a survey questionnaire measuring their responses to four constructs (performance expectancy, effort expectancy, social influence and facilitating conditions) derived from the Unified Theory of Acceptance and Use of Technology [UTAUT; Venkatesh, V., Morris, M.G., Davis, G., & Davis, F.D. (2003). User acceptance of information technology: Toward a unified view. MIS Quarterly, 27, 425–478]. Structural equation modelling showed that the UTAUT is a useful model in explaining pre-service teachers’ intention to use technology. However, multi-group analyses revealed that gender and age had moderated the UTAUT in ways that were different from Venkatesh et al. A possible explanation is that the strength and influences of the core determinants of the UTAUT may work differently when applied to another culture.
