Abstract:The purpose of this study is to identify the factors which, directly and indirectly, effect students' desire to use smart devices for academic purposes. This is a quantitative study based on a population of 146 students in two universities in Israel. The main novelty of this study is a mediation model which helps identify factors and connections which effect the extent of smart device academic use and predicts students' motivation to make use of these devices. The model shows that experience is a major factor in the extent of smart device use in the academia. Experience leads to high use evaluation indices. The manner in which students cope with problems arising during use of the devices alongside their positions regarding smart device use, lead to the goal variable - the extent of smart device academic use. The findings of this study will help in both the theoretical and applicable aspects of effective assimilation of smart devices in Israeli academia.
