Abstract

Based on the initial findings of Study I (Theng, Lim, Liu, & Cheok, 2007) on our plant mixed reality system (PMRS), designed for primary school children (11-12 years old), this chapter describes Study II, employing the well-established technology acceptance model (TAM) to investigate participants’ perceptions of usefulness and usability, identified as key determinants of participants’ intention to use the system. Preliminary results seemed to indicate participants’ intention to use the PMRS for learning, and this intention was influenced directly by perceived usefulness and indirectly through perceived usability and social influence. System quality, personal innovativeness, and compatibility were found to be important external factors. The chapter concludes with a discussion of implications on the design of mixed reality systems for education.
