With the “industrial revolution 4.0” at hand, students are adopting to new technologies available in the market that could lessen the burden of studying. Lots of online materials, software, and applications are now made available for students for the purpose of coping with the different school activities given by their teachers. These new tools in learning, if used properly, would lessen the burden of and time spent by each student in accomplishing the tasks assigned to them by their mentors. Though new technologies are seen to be helpful and available, there are still students who prefer the traditional way of learning. This phenomenon signals the researchers to determine the behavior and intention of students in using the new technologies available to them. Applying multiple linear regression and with the support of coefficient of determination (R2), the researchers found significant pieces of evidence on the relationships and the effects of students’ behavior and intention, and available technology on the way they use the new and emerging technology in the market, specifically in the educational system. Results showed that intention, behavior, and technology have a positive impact on the decision of students to use the new technology with a goodness of fit of 91.50 percent. With these, the researchers suggest that school administrators should invest more on the acquisition of the new technology in education and provide trainings and seminars for faculty members and students in explaining the usefulness and the advantages of these breakthroughs to education.
