    • Background • The “digital native” students have already found many Web 2.0 tools integral to their daily life • Many researchers have found that perceived usefulness, or the extent to which an individual believes that the use of technology will enhance performance, has a positive influence on behavioral intention (Davis, 1989; Hartshorne, Ajjan, and Ferdig, 2010; Roger 2003; Taylor & Todd, 1995) • The greater the perceived usefulness of a technological application, the more likely it is for the individual to use the new technology (Hartshorne, Ajjan, and Ferdig, 2010; Rogers, 2003). • Studies of teachers’ perceptions and opinions are critical because teachers’ perceptions are significant to the implementation of technology innovations in teaching and learning. The University of Southern Mississippi
