Buabeng-Andoh, Charles
International Journal of Information and Communication Technology Education, v13 n3 Article 4 p40-52 2017
The purpose of this study was to study undergraduate students' acceptance and use of ICT in classrooms. A total of 361 students from four universities participated in the study. Survey questionnaires which comprised both closed-ended and open-ended questions were used to collect data. Descriptive statistics, Pearson correlation, repeated-measures of Analysis of variance and multiple regression were used to analyze the findings. The study revealed that students use technology for personal purposes rather than for instructional purposes. Despite, students' high acceptance of technology, their technology integration into learning has remained low. The analysis showed that students believing that technology can improve their relationship with other students significantly contributed to their acceptance of technology in schools. Understanding students' acceptance and their experiences of technology use offer insights into their integration of technology into learning.
