Wang Jianjun, Zakri Abdul Harmid, Wee Hoe Tan


Considering increasing diversity and the need for culturally responsive education, this study examines the integration of technology within multicultural curricula in Chinese high schools. This study focuses on the interplay between task characteristics and technological capabilities and their impact on student performance. Grounded in the TaskTechnology Fit theory, the analysis employs structural equation modelling (SEM) to assess the relationships among these variables. This study aims to identify how aligning educational tasks with technological resources can enhance student outcomes in multicultural learning environments. The research design involved collecting data from a purposive sample of teachers and students in Beijing, and the analysis revealed significant relationships among task characteristics (TaC), technology characteristics (TeC), tasktechnology fit (TTF), and student performance (SP). The findings highlight that optimal alignment between educational tasks and technological tools is crucial for enhancing academic performance and fostering deeper engagement with the multicultural aspects of the curriculum. These results emphasise the critical need for strategic selection and integration of technology in educational settings. This study underscores the importance of developing strategies that consider both the pedagogical aspects of the curriculum and the technological tools used for its delivery. This research provides empirical insights into the effective use of technology in multicultural education and offers valuable guidance for educators and policymakers. Furthermore, it plays a role in attaining sustainable development goal 4 and 10. The findings contribute to the ongoing discourse on educational technology and multicultural education, with practical implications for enhancing teaching and learning in diverse educational contexts.
