Abstract

This study aimed to determine the level of acceptance of infographics apps among preservice teachers at Kuwait University and examine the effect of several independent variables on the level of acceptance. It used exploratory quasi- experimental descriptive analysis based primarily on a quantitative approach and specifically adopted the information and communication technology acceptance model (ICTAM). A stratified sample of 162 preservice female teachers from the College of Education at Kuwait University participated in this study. The participants were introduced to and trained on various infographics apps. At the end of the semester, an anonymous questionnaire was administered through an online survey tool, and the preservice teachers were asked to voluntarily participate and complete the questionnaire. A set of descriptive statistics (i.e., frequencies, percentages, means, and standard deviations) and inferential comparisons tests (i.e., independent-samples t-tests, one-way analyses of variance “ANOVAs”, Dunnett’s C multiple comparisons tests, and Scheffe’s multiple comparisons tests) were employed to analyze the data. The findings revealed that the level of acceptance among preservice teachers regarding the use of infographics apps was “high” (M = 3.85, SD = 0.67). Although the results uncovered a few significant differences with regard to some independent variables (i.e., year of study, ICT daily usage, and GPA), the level of overall acceptance of the infographics apps was very high.
