The Influencing Factors on the Effective Use of Education APP Under the Background of Education Informatization
Under the background of educational informationization, educational information system and various informationized teaching tools are changing people’s learning methods and lifestyles. However, as one of the important carriers or tools of educational informationization, the effect of educational APP in practical application is not as good as the designer expected. Therefore, how to exert the value of educational APP has become a problem urgently to be solved. This problem, based on the theory of social influence and 241 data collected from the survey as samples, constructs a research model for empirical research. The results show that the individual’s exploratory behavior towards educational APP can significantly affect their willingness to continue exploring. Subjective norms and social identity in social influence theory can affect the individual’s willingness to explore APP, while group norms have no significant impact. In addition, the results also show that perceived usefulness partially mediates the relationship between exploratory behavior and sustained exploratory willingness. The research in this paper is used for reference in the development and design of educational APP.
