There are different technological models.

One technological model considers technology as an external force having deterministic objects. As such it is considered as objective in nature.

The second technological model is called as Strategic Choice Model. It focuses on human actions on technology. It considers technology as a product of shared interpretations or interventions.

The third technological model is called as Technology as a trigger for structural change. This model puts forward a deterministic but soft point of view according to which the technology is a relatively objective external force and its impacts are moderated by human actions.

The fourth model is the Technological Acceptance Model. It is an information systems theory that models how users come to accept and use a technology.

Technology Acceptance Model deals more specifically with the prediction of the acceptability of an information system. The purpose of this model is to predict the acceptability of a tool and to identify the modifications which must be brought to the system in order to make it acceptable to users. This model suggests that the acceptability of an information system is determined by two main factors: perceived usefulness and perceived ease of use.
