Abstract

This study sets out to validate and test the Technology Acceptance Model in the context of Ghanaian pre-service teachers’ attitude towards Information and Communication Technology in teaching and learning. To achieve this aim, the study extended the TAM framework by adding leadership support and job relevance as exogenous variables. Data were randomly collected from 380 pre-service teachers who were studying a 3-year Diploma in Education programme in Ghana. Based on a multiple stepwise regression analysis, the findings suggested the following: (1) leadership support significantly influenced perceived ease of use; (2) job relevance significantly influenced perceived usefulness; (3) perceived usefulness significantly influenced attitude towards use; (4) perceived ease of use significantly influenced attitude towards use (5) the TAM is significant for pre-service teacher education context except the relationship between PEU and PU. The findings of this study contribute to the literature by validating the Technology Acceptance Model in the Ghanaian pre-service teacher education context and provide several implications for the research and practice of ICT adoption development.
