An inherent feature of technology in education is the constant development of new technologies and creating new and modern applications of already existing technologies. To date, numerous studies that examined student perceptions on information technology and communication have been carried out. Generally, the findings showed that students' perception had an influence on the adoption of technology. Using the Technology Acceptance Model as a framework, the purpose of this paper is to examine relationship between students' perception of Wireless Classroom Technology and adoption of technology. Two dimensions of Wireless Classroom Technology investigated were perceived ease of use and perceived usefulness. The data were collected from 191 undergraduate information technology students from a public university located on the northern region of Peninsular Malaysia. Using regression analysis, the results indicated that there is a significant relationship between perceived ease of use and adoption of technology. This study also suggests that adoption of Wireless Classroom Technology benefits the students. The findings should guide the management of the public university to improve the information and communication technology infrastructure. Recommendations and conclusions are also presented.
