ways elementary education prospective teachers are being informed
about innovations and to explain the role of social influence in the
usage process of a technological innovation in terms of genders. The
study group consisted of 300 prospective teachers, including 234
females and 66 males. Data have been collected by a questionnaire

while prospective teachers are being informed about innovations
most frequently by mass media, they rarely seek to take expert
advice. In addition, analysis of results showed that the social
