Abstract

In response towards the advances of technology in the Malaysian education system, the authors investigated the predictors of technology acceptance among a sample of student teachers. Data collected from 245 student teachers were tested against the Technology Acceptance Model using the structural equation modeling approach. The variables that were tested included perceived usefulness (PU), perceived ease of use (PEU), attitudes toward computer use (ATCU), and behavioural intentions to use the computer (BI). The results of the study showed that ATCU was significantly influenced by PU and PEU. PEU also influenced PU significantly and BI was jointly influenced by PU and ATCU.
