It will attempt to help find ways to ‎overcome the potential obstacles that obstruct the ideal use of IT in the ‎educational sector. In this research, the influence of social and ‎psychological variables on IT use in schools was examined using TAM ‎‎(Technology Acceptance Model). It was found that age, English language ‎skills, computer skills and technology availability have a positive impact ‎on the teachers' attitude towards IT and the use of IT in the educational ‎process.‎
