The purpose of the present study was to explore, in depth, the factors influencing teachers' attitudes towards the integration of tablets into their classroom for teaching purposes. In order to achieve the purpose of the study, semi-structured interviews were conducted with 15 teachers from five rural middle schools in Palestine. A thematic analysis approach was used to analyze the interview data. The findings of the study revealed that teachers use tablets because it facilitates their teaching as well as provides equality of access to the Internet and educational technology for students in rural schools. Furthermore, there was diversity in teachers' attitudes towards tablets based on a variety of factors such as technical support and the availability of suitable educational resources. Further research is needed to conduct a comparative study between schools and different topics.
