Abstract This study examines the relationship between the level of risk‐taking among Israeli elementary school teachers and their attitude towards the use of computers within the framework of Computer‐Assisted Instruction (CAI). The teachers in the research sample responded to two questionnaires‐risk‐taking questionnaire and attitude towards computers questionnaire. One factor‐risktaking behaviour‐was yielded from the first questionnaire and one factor‐computer related attitude‐was yielded from the second. An analysis of the data obtained in the study indicates that teachers who are high‐level risk‐takers are more positive towards the use of computers in their teaching activities than medium‐level risktakers who in turn have a more positive attitude towards computer use within the framework of CAI than low‐level risk‐takers.
