This study examined the interdependence of student and parent Perceived Technological Efficacy (PTE), Social Uses of Technology (SUT), and Technological Contribution (TC) derived from the Positive Technological Development (PTD) framework. Four hundred and eighty two Primary 5 (Grade 5) and Primary 6 (Grade 6) students and their parents in three primary schools in Hong Kong provided data for dyadic analysis in this study. Results from structural equation modeling (SEM) analysis of the Actor-Partner Independence Model (APIM) indicated strong actor effects for the prediction of student and parent SUT as well as TC. No significant partner effects from student PTE, SUT, and TC to parent PTE, SUT, and TC or vice versa were found. Implications of the findings are discussed.
