Abstract: To gain insight into how to promote teachers’ use of digital learning materials (DLMs) in their pedagogical practices we adopted the Integrated Model of Behavior Prediction to investigate the relationships between organizational and teacher related variables. A representative sample of 772 teachers from primary, secondary or vocational education took part in a survey study. Conjectured combinations of direct and indirect relationships between the variables were tested for the best model fit with structural equation modeling. The results suggest that a model with mediating relations from leadership through ICT policy and professional development activities to the variables self-efficacy, attitude and social norm, combined with direct relations from leadership to the latter has the best fit for predicting teachers’ intention to use DLMs.
