Abstract: This research aims to verify the impact of motivational factors on the intention of use of a Virtual Learning Environment. The environment studied was an e-government web application used by The Brazilian Ministry of Education offered to Brazilian high schools. In this preliminary approach, a case study was done in a private school in Rio de Janeiro followed by an experiment with 20 of its students. Qualitative and quantitative data allowed to endorse some of the results. Previous studies have indicated that teenagers tend to be motivated by playful environments, pointing to the importance of the perceived enjoyment factor. Nevertheless, in this study the perceived usefulness factor appeared as the greatest motivator for the intention of use of the adopted technology. The results of this study will be beneficial for increasing our understanding of new generation adoption of technology.
