  1. MIT LINC 2007 Technology Acceptance Model and Teachers’ Adoption of Laptops Emel DIKBAS TORUN Hale ILGAZ Prof. Yasemin KOCAK USLUEL Hacettepe University, Ankara, TURKIYE

  2. INTRODUCTION This qualitative study investigates the teachers’perceptions of their adoption of laptops as an innovation within the Technology Acceptance Model (TAM) framework and E-learning. • Use of laptops in e-learning applications • Computers’ role in E-learning technologies • Enhancing the skills of teachers “Technology Acceptance Model and Teachers’ Adoption of Laptops” from Hacettepe University, Ankara, TURKIYE / MIT LINC 2007

  3. Technology Acceptance Model (TAM) External Variables Perceived usefulness Perceived ease of use Attitude Towards Behavioral Intention to use Actual System Use “Technology Acceptance Model and Teachers’ Adoption of Laptops” from Hacettepe University, Ankara, TURKIYE / MIT LINC 2007

  4. Theoretical Background and TAM • Perceived Usefulness (PU):The degree of performance for a person who uses a particular system. The person believes that his/her performance is enhanced by using the system. • Perceived Ease of Use (PEOU): The extent to which an individual believes that using the system will be free of effort TAM is applied in various fields and widely used by the researchers in order to make a better understanding of adoption and use of technology “Technology Acceptance Model and Teachers’ Adoption of Laptops” from Hacettepe University, Ankara, TURKIYE / MIT LINC 2007

  5. PARTICIPANTS • 40 Teachers from three different school types; • High School • Anatolian High School • Anatolian Commercial Trade High School • 40 teachers from each school answered the researcher’s questions from semi-structured interview form during face-to-face interviews. For this study, 24 teachers - 8 from each school - were selected among 40 interviewed teachers. “Technology Acceptance Model and Teachers’ Adoption of Laptops” from Hacettepe University, Ankara, TURKIYE / MIT LINC 2007

  8. “What kind of usefulness can a laptop provide for you / teachers?” “Technology Acceptance Model and Teachers’ Adoption of Laptops” from Hacettepe University, Ankara, TURKIYE / MIT LINC 2007

  9. Teachers’ Perceived Ease of Use (Laptop Users) Teachers’ Perceived Ease of Use (Non-laptop Laptop Users) “Technology Acceptance Model and Teachers’ Adoption of Laptops” from Hacettepe University, Ankara, TURKIYE / MIT LINC 2007

  10. Intention to Use • Do you intend to use your laptop in the future? • Do you intend to have a laptop in the future? • PU and PEOU are important for teachers. • This study shows us that PEOU is prior for teachers in laptop use by its technical and practical characteristics. • Teachers look for the technologies which are easy to operate • Organizational factors and supportive technical equipments are also important “Technology Acceptance Model and Teachers’ Adoption of Laptops” from Hacettepe University, Ankara, TURKIYE / MIT LINC 2007
