This study attempts to predict the usage of information technology in the school work of the youths in Africa. Collected primary data from two African countries (Ethiopia and Rwanda) are tested against the conceptual model of Thompson, Higgins, and Howell (1991) with the help of structural equation implementation. This is a research in progress. The report explains the foci and the distinguishing aspects of this study, the data collection methodologies, and the challenges that were faced in bridging the barrier of language of communication. Descriptive statistics of the collected data and the future directions in this research are presented.
