Abstract: A number of states and organizations have begun to add cross-content technology elements to their educational standards, providing teachers opportunities to use social media communication (SMC) technology in teaching and learning Specifically, in Pennsylvania, the PA Core Standards, which are adapted from the national Common Core Standards, require students to use technology, including the Internet, to publish and edit their writing in response to feedback as well as gather, analyze, and critique digital text sources To support the integration of technology into teaching and learning Pennsylvania has also provided money through the Classroom for the Future grant The purpose of this study was to examine the attitudes, subjective norms, perceived behavioral control, and intentions of public secondary teachers’ use of SMC technologies as part of their teacher lectures The results of the study suggest that teachers’ intentions to use SMC in their lectures are low; however, their perceptions of the use of SMC as a pedagogical tool are positive Teachers’ positive perceptions suggest they view the use of SMC technologies in teaching and learning as appropriate for the classroom
