Studying the impact of the network environment in Tibet on the information technology application ability of Tibetan preschool teachers is of great significance for developing preschool education and improving the overall quality of education in Tibet. This study investigated 688 Tibetan preschool teachers and constructed an intermediary model to explore the impact mechanism of the network environment in Tibet on the information technology application ability of Tibetan preschool teachers. The results show that the network environment in Tibet, the self-efficacy of Tibetan preschool teachers, and the application ability of information technology are all at a medium level; The network environment has a significant predictive effect on the information technology application ability of Tibetan preschool teachers; Self-efficacy plays a partial mediating role between the network environment and Tibetan preschool teachers' information technology application ability.
