BYOD, Digital Education, Technology Acceptance Model (TAM), Technology enhanced Learning


In today’s world, the technology has been embedded in all aspects of human life. The education sector has been at the forefront of technology adoption. Technology-enhanced learning (TEL) is a system of education that promotes the application of information and communication technology for teaching and learning and the concept of “bring your own device” (BYOD) supports this. BYOD is particularly beneficial for the education sector due to cost saving and comfort of using personal devices. Researchers believe that inclusion of technology must be supported by the user acceptance and the most popular framework to predict user acceptance of technology is the Technology Acceptance Model (TAM) proposed by Davis…..
