Abstract

Given the paradox between pervasive promotion of technology use in English teaching and lack of studies about teachers' technology acceptance in China, this study aims to examine intentions of English teachers in China to use technology in their classroom teaching. Based on the technology acceptance model, eight variables including perceived usefulness (PU), perceived ease of use (PEU), attitude toward use, behavioral intention (BI), computer self-efficacy (CSE), technology complexity (TC), facilitating conditions (FC), and constructivist teaching beliefs (CTBs) were incorporated to examine relationships among these variables. Data were collected from 183 English teachers at 5 Chinese universities via a self-report questionnaire and analyzed using a structural equation model. Results indicated that the proposed model has a good fit. Three variables - PU, FC, and CTBs were found to be significant predictors of attitude toward use, while PEU and TC were not.Additionally, PU, CSE, and CTBs are significant antecedents for teachers' BIs to use technology. This study contributed to the understanding of technology acceptance theories by contextualizing thecurrent study to Chinese educational context. It also provided valuable references for technology-related policy-making and teachers' professional development.
