چکیده

تحقیق توصیفی- همبستگی حاضر با هدف بررسی عوامل مؤثر بر نگرش دانشجویان کارشناسی ارشد کشاورزی درمورد به‌کارگیری فناوری اطلاعات و ارتباطات در فعالیت­های آموزشی و پژوهشی انجام گرفت. جامعة آماری این تحقیق، شامل 337 نفر از دانشجویان کارشناسی ارشد دانشکدة کشاورزی دانشگاه زنجان بود که با توجه به جدول کرجسی- مورگان، 180 نفر از آنان از طریق روش نمونه‌گیری طبقه‌ای با انتساب متناسب انتخاب شدند. برای گردآوری داده‌ها از پرسشنامه استفاده شد. نتایج تحلیل همبستگی نشان داد رابطه بین متغیر وابستة نگرش دانشجویان درمورد به‌کارگیری فناوری اطلاعات و ارتباطات در فعالیت­های آموزشی و پژوهشی با متغیر تعداد شرکت در دوره­های آموزشی در زمینة رایانه و اینترنت در سطح یک درصد و با دو متغیر میزان ساعت استفاده از اینترنت و میزان آشنایی با زمینه­های مختلف مرتبط با فناوری اطلاعات و ارتباطات در سطح پنج درصد مثبت و معنی­دار بود. با توجه به نتایج آزمون t مشخص شد بین نگرش دانشجویان درمورد به‌کارگیری فناوری اطلاعات و ارتباطات در فعالیت­های آموزشی و پژوهشی برحسب داشتن/ نداشتن رایانة شخصی در سطح پنج درصد تفاوت معنی­داری وجود داشت. نتایج تحلیل رگرسیون بیانگر آن بود که 2/62 درصد از واریانس متغیر وابسته را سه متغیر میزان آشنایی با زمینه­های مختلف مرتبط با فناوری اطلاعات و ارتباطات، تعداد شرکت در دوره­های آموزشی در زمینة رایانه و اینترنت و میزان ساعت استفاده از اینترنت تبیین می‌کنند.
