School Counselors’ Intention to Use Technology: The Technology Acceptance Model
This study assessed school counselors’ intention to use computer technology to support school counseling services. A total of 125 school counselors (74.8% female) completed an online questionnaire that assessed the main constructs of the Technology Acceptance Model (TAM). Confirmatory factor analysis and alpha technique results provided evidence of the validity and reliability of this measure. Structural equation modeling provided support for the TAM. Specifically, school counselors who perceived ICT to be easy to use were more likely to perceive ICT as useful and to have a positive attitude about ICT; perceived usefulness also predicted positive attitudes toward ICT; and positive attitudes toward ICT predicted intention to use these technologies. The results are discussed in terms of school counselors’ technology acceptance in the Indonesian context.
