The current study aimed to looking for the impact of individual, organizational and cultural variables in the adoption of information technology among teachers in the form of causal modeling. This study is placed among the causal modeling, which contains the path analysis and structural equation modeling. The statistical population of the study was one district high school teachers in the city of Urmia with the 260 persons. Based on Krejcie and Morgan table 150 persons of them were selected by cluster sampling method. Therefore they responded the questionnaire which consists of these subscales: decide to use, expected performance, effort expectancy, social influence and facilitating conditions, individualism/ collectivism, uncertainty avoidance and power distance, and masculinity/ femininity. To analyze the data, structural equation modeling based on partial least squares (PLS) and one sample t test was used to check the status of cultural and organizational components. Findings showed performance and effort expectancy, and social influence had positive and significant effect on the decision to use information technology. Facilitating conditions and masculinity/ femininity had positive effect on use behavior. Also the effects of uncertainty avoidance and power distance were negative and significant. But the effect of individualism/ collectivism on these variables was not significant. Finally the tested model predicted 27% of variance in intention to computer use and 19% of use behavior.
