Abstract

A survey involving 1,318 Malaysian teachers was conducted and data were analysed using Structural Equation Modeling (SEM) to investigate the factors leading to the adoption or integration of Information and Communications Technology (ICT) into teaching and learning. The results revealed that Basic ICT skills, Advanced ICT skills and Internet skills have significant direct and indirect effects on ICT Integration into Teaching and Learning and into Everyday Work. Also, Belief towards ICT effects on students, Belief towards the benefits of ICT and Belief towards the importance of ICT are significant mediating factors in ICT Integration into Teaching and Learning and into Everyday Work. This indicated that teachers’ belief is an important mediating factor in ICT integration and should be included and stressed in teachers’ ICT development and training.
