An ICT Adoption Framework for Education: A Components Analysis
Abstract— In the past ten years, adoption of Information and Communication Technology (ICT) in
education is growing rapidly in almost every country in the world as an enabler to achieve the schools’ goal.
Despite many success reports on ICT adoption in education, there are many other studies conclude that ICT
adoption in education is still a challenging problem. One of remaining challenge is how to identify and
address key components for successful ICT adoption in school. The objective of this research is to propose
some steps on how to identify and evaluate these components of ICT adoption using data-driven (bottom-up)
approach. This method has been tested using primary data from schools in Indonesia. Some findings of this
empiric research are some components which reflect the main components of ICT adoption in education. The
identified components and their weights are: ICT Facilities (weight=20.35%), Utilizing ICT in school
administration (weight=14.89%), Utilizing ICT in teaching and learning (weight=12.71%), User skill
(weight=11.52%), Policy (weight=6.61%), Financial (weight=6.53%), and Basic ICT Infrastructure
(weight=6.29%). Last but not least, discussions regarding the findings are also presented.
