A Conceptual Framework for ICT Acceptance Impact on Students’ Academic Performance: Higher Education Institutes (HEIs) in Sindh,





Academic performance, Information and Communication Technologies, Technology Acceptance Model


Presently, Information and Communication Technologies (I&CT) is considered one of key element as services and features in higher education. Learning through traditional way is no longer the norm in higher education at present. Instead, advanced ICT is becoming a viable paradigm for fundamentally altering Higher Education Institutions (HIEs). In this regard, the Higher Education Commission (HEC) of Pakistan has launched several initiatives and made significant investments in the usage of technology in the education segment. However, it is unclear what influence ICT usage will have upon the environment, student academic performance, and learning. Evidence from literature the scarcity of research available on ICT impacts on students' academic performance, as well as the effectiveness of ICT in universities. Therefore, it needs to recognize the significance of ICT availability and the academic performance of students. The determination of this study is to explore, examine, and evaluate ICT acceptance impact on student performance at universities in Sindh, Pakistan. This study based on the extended Technology Acceptance Model (TAM) with various external factors. This is the basic model to understand user observations and behavior toward latent acceptance and denial. This research is based on a quantitative research technique for triangulate to acquire the optimal research outcome. A collection of facts in this study from students will be a cross-sectional questionnaire survey method. The Structure equation modeling (SEM) will be used to determine the rationality of the research model with Analysis of Moment Structures (AMOS) software. The estimated outcome of this study will showcase the extent at universities in Sindh, and also showcase the ICT impact on student academic performance. Based on those outcomes a critical framework would be recommended for students to integrate ICT.The significance of this framework will be recommended (HEIs) to enrich the quality of the education system by efficiently employing ICT to improve students' capacity to be more effective and quality-oriented professionals.
