The main goal of the study presented in this paper was to investigate the perceptions of 40 pre-service English as a Foreign Language (EFL) teachers about the effectiveness of Tablet PCs as instructional tools in EFL classes. The study was conducted at a state university in Turkey and the data collection was mainly done via two questionnaires. Quantitative data analysis done on participants' responses revealed that the majority of pre-service ELF teachers regarded Tablet PCs as effective instructional tools in teaching most of the subcomponents of English. The paper discusses the results in detail with implications and suggestions for educators.
