Recently, the coronavirus disease (COVID-19) pandemic has led to rapid digitalisation in education, requiring educators to adopt several technologies simultaneously for online learning and teaching. Using a large-scale survey (N = 1740), this study aims to construct a model that predicts teachers’ extensive technology acceptance by extending TAM with their technological pedagogical content knowledge (TPACK) and innovativeness. Technology Acceptance Model (TAM) has been a valuable tool to measure the adoption of new technology in various contexts, including education. However, TAM has been designed and principally applied to assess user acceptance of a specific technology implementation. This study has extended TAM to measure teachers’ technology-enabled practice (online teaching) with the adoption of various technologies. The proposed model explains teachers’ behavioural intention to online teaching with a good fit. Our findings revealed the collective effects of TPACK, perceived usefulness (PU) of technology, and innovativeness on teachers’ behavioural intention to teach online post-pandemic. Moreover, the study identified training and support from school as a significant predictor for both teachers’ TPACK and PU. The novelty of this study lies in its model conceptualisation that incorporates both information-technology-based constructs and personal-competence-based features, including TPACK and innovativeness. Furthermore, our study contributes to the growing body of literature that addresses online teaching adoption by schoolteachers in the post-pandemic era.
