This study investigated use of the Theory of Planned Behaviour (TPB) (Ajzen, 1985) as a framework for predicting and explaining teachers' intentions and use of ICT in teaching. Instrumentation consisted of a six-part self-report questionnaire: (1) Demographic information, (2) Attitudes towards use of ICT (AB), (3) Subjective Norms (SN), (4) Perceived Behavioral Control (PBC), (5) Intention to use (I), and (6) Use of ICT (B). Structural equation modeling (SEM) using AMOS 4.0, was used to assess the strength of the relationships between the construct variables and the model fit. The results indicated that teachers' attitudes towards use of ICT and subjective norms significantly predict their intentions and that intentions significantly predict behaviour. However, perceived behavioural control was found not to have significant influence on intentions and behaviour. The TPB theoretical model explained 17% of the variance in teachers' intentions to use ICT and 24% of the variance in use.
