computer self-efficacy from Durndell, Haag and Laithwaite’s “Computer Self-Efficacy Scale”
1. What are the computer phobia levels of Taiwanese elementary EFL teachers?

2. What are the computer self-efficacy levels of Taiwanese elementary EFL teachers?

3. What are the relationships between computer phobia and computer self-efficacy of Taiwanese elementary EFL teachers?

4. Do the computer phobia levels and computer self-efficacy of Taiwanese elementary EFL teachers differ due to their background characteristics?

The participants had computer anxiety in different degrees changing moderate to high, and they had low level of computer self-efficacy.

There is a negative correlation between their computer anxiety and computer self-efficacy.

Teachers who often use computer have lower level of computer anxiety.

Male teachers’ perception of their self-efficacy regarding computer use is higher as compared with females.

Younger teachers rated themselves as higher self-efficacy in relation to computer use and lower level in terms of computer anxiety.
