The purpose of this study is to research the factors which influence pre-service teachers’ intent to adopt information and communication technology (ICT) in their K-12 classrooms. As the number of ICT tools increase in our schools, it is imperative to understand the factors which influence teachers’ decisions to accept or reject technology as a potential teaching tool. The Unified Theory of Acceptance and Use of Technology was used to investigate the role of performance expectancy, effort expectancy, social influence, and facilitating conditions on 85 pre-service teachers’ acceptance and use of technology. The results of the survey and the findings of follow-up focus group sessions will be presented at the conference.
