Abstract

The occurrence of Covid-19 has caused the existing school learning system to move to online teaching and learning methods. They are carried out to safeguard the continuity of school learning sessions, attempting to avert dropouts. This paper analyzes the relationships between organizational factors, perceived usefulness, personal innovativeness, and peers with technology adoption among teachers in rural schools in Segamat District. A total of 117 teachers were involved in this study. The results showed that perceived usefulness, personal innovativeness, and peers influenced technology adoption among teachers from rural schools.
