Abstract

Internet of Things (IoT) has changed things over decades. Education method has shown small improvement only in some area. The SMART education has been introduced. Some of the concepts of SMART education has been implemented in other forms. Thailand has introduced Thailand 4.0 policy which includes the SMART city as a new engine growth of a nation. SMART education is a part of SMART city. This paper is aiming to understand the perception of perceived ease of use towards perceived of usefulness on the SMART education. The Technology Adoption Model (TAM) has been used to measure the concept focusing on perceived ease of use and perceived of usefulness. There are 424 respondents using convenience sampling and snowball methods. The research uses statistical software with the Pearson correlation, single linear regression, and multiple linear regressions to measure the result. All SMART components are perceived as useful except Resource Enriched. The strongest perceived usefulness is Technology Embedded (TE). The second and third strongest perceived usefulness is Adaptive (AE) and Motivate (ME). The least perceived usefulness is Self-directed (SE). The study can benefit the institute to focus on any part of SMART education components based on their focus by their priority in term of implementation, development, and budget allocation for investment.
