Abstract: The study examined factors influencing primary school teachers’ intention to use information technology for teaching. The study was a survey type and the sample comprises of 125 primary school teachers in Ilorin. The instrument used for data collection was adapted and modified and subjected to validity and reliability check. A reliability check on each of the five constructs of the study showed an alpha of .76, .92, .96, .93, and .82 respectively. The research questions were subjected to descriptive statistic while the hypotheses of the study were subjected to regression analysis. The findings of the study revealed that all the four independent variable statistically influence intention toward use with the following effect size, Perceived value (β= .63, P˂.05), Computer self efficacy ((β= .73, P˂.05), Attitude (β= .70, P˂.05), Resistance to change (β= .49, P˂.05), and computer self efficacy stood to be the strongest factor. Based on these findings, the study recommends among other that the teacher should be given training on pedagogical use of computer for teaching function in order to increase their self efficacy which will in turn influence adoption of information technology.
