This study examined pre-service teachers' self-reported intention to use technology by employing the Theory of Planned Behavior (TPB) as the research framework. One hundred and fifty-seven participants completed a survey questionnaire measuring their responses to four constructs in the TPB. These were administered at the beginning of the course in which technology was taught and used. Structural Equation Modeling (SEM) was used as the technique for data analysis. The results of this study showed that attitudes toward usage and subjective norms were significant predictors of behavioral intention to use technology while perceived behavioral control was not. Overall, this study found that the three explanatory variables in the TPB explained about 40% of the variance in behavioral intention to use technology.
