The purpose of this empirical study was to investigate the effect of two important factors, self-efficacy and ICT infrastructure, on the teachers’ ability of ICT use in school pedagogy. The study employed a descriptive survey method within an ex-post-facto research design taking 400 teachers as samples from hundred purposively selected Indian secondary schools. Data were analyzed descriptively and inferentially. Results revealed that perception of self-efficacy and infrastructure were significant predictors of the teachers’ ability of ICT use. The two independent variables were found to have a high collective prediction on the teachers’ ability. Though, separate analyses revealed that self-efficacy having a deeper prediction on the teachers’ ICT ability than the infrastructure. The findings support the Unified Theory of Acceptance and Use of Technology (UTAUT) model (an extension of TAM) and made a further extension with two selected factors, one included in the facilitating conditions and the other in the users’ behavioral intention in the original UTAUT model.
