This paper describes design and implementation of a two-dimensional model for teachers' Information and Communication Technologies (ICT) adoption. The model involves a technological dimension and a pedagogical dimension. It is intended for use both as an evaluation tool and a professional development facilitator. The technological dimension of the model is divided into seven levels- nonuse, using off-the-shelf CAI software, using word processors to create text-based materials, utilizing readily available multimedia resources, creating multimedia instructional materials, producing simple CAI applications, and implementing sophisticated CAI systems, whereas the pedagogical dimension is divided into four levels-mundane use, initial attempts, blending, and innovation. Three case studies were conducted to examine the usefulness of the model. For the three teachers observed in the case studies, our model successfully served as a guide to facilitate their growth in ICT adoption.
