The government recognises that the use of the Internet in education brings many benefits, but the use of computers among teachers is quite limited. The 'hardware' and 'software' management has made the teacher face many problems and did not want to use it in the classroom. As a result, computer literacy skills are a barrier among teachers and skilled teachers to operate computers and schools. This study aims to analyse the intention of Digital Education behaviour among Malaysian school teachers and to explore individual skills as an advanced component of the extended Theory of Planned Behavior. Also, this study aims to examine the role of Attitude, Subjective Normative and Perceived Behavioral as intermediaries on the relationship between individual skills and intentions to use the Internet among school teachers in Malaysia as well as to develop an extended Theory Planned Behavioral model including Individual Skills. 30 teacher was the interview to collect data as a pilot study based on a quantitative approach. In term of statistical analysis, the structural equation model (SEM) is more logical and more suitable to be used. The findings indicate that among all the hypotheses created referring to the previous study demonstrate the basis of TPB, ATT with ITU, SN with ITU and PBC with ITU showing a positive impact on using the Internet towards digital education among school teachers. Additionally, after TPB's extended show of IS with ATT also has a positive relationship on the using of the Internet among teachers on the use of digital education. For researchers, this study provides a basis for future references about the digital education of the Theory of Planned Behavior.
