Public education institutions lie at the center of the education system. However, little is known about how ready students in public and private colleges are when it comes to technology adoption and usage. This study investigates this by analyzing 640 college students in Vietnam. Our findings show that overall technology readiness and technology-related traits are main predictors of technology adoption and usage. Public college students are less ready for technology but more likely to adopt technology than private college students. This study provides useful insights into the vital role of youths in contributing to economic development in the digital era.
