Abstract: Tools such as virtual reality, tangible user interfaces, and artificial intelligence can assist teachers in creating learning experiences that promote critical thinking and problem-solving. Yet, it is unknown if teachers intend to use emerging tools in their own future teaching practices. One hundred pre-service teachers in their final semester before graduation were surveyed to determine their behavioral intentions to use emerging technology tools and related pedagogies in their future teaching practices. The findings indicated that predictive factors included: (a) attitudes; (b) subjective norms; and (c) perceived behavioral control.
