Mobile-Based Teacher Professional Training: Influence Factor of Technology Acceptance

Conference paper
Part of the Lecture Notes in Educational Technology book series (LNET)


Network training provides an effective way for teachers to develop their own profession and pursue lifelong learning. With the development of mobile learning, it brings new possibilities for teacher network training. However, there is a lack of existing analysis on the influence factor of technology acceptance of mobile-based teacher professional training. The research object of this study is the teachers who participate in training based on a teacher network training platform, called Open. With reference to the existing technology acceptance model, the author constructs the technology acceptance model for mobile-based teacher professional training. A questionnaire survey was used to recover 107160 data, including 80036 valid data. Then, by using the structural equation model, the influencing factors of mobile-based teacher professional training are analyzed. With these results, the potential and inadequacies of mobile-based teacher professional training are discussed, and some suggestions are offered for teacher professional training.
