ICT is increasingly widespread, influencing educational systems worldwide. The effectiveness of ICT in any educational reform movement should not be taken for granted. ICT educational tools can be a transformative tool that may facilitate meaningful learning in physics courses if educators are willing to embrace it with a positive attitude. Teachers are the key to the appropriate integration of technology in the educational system. The attitude of physics teachers has a tremendous effect on its integration in physics classrooms. This research paper is aimed to examine the attitudes toward the use of ICTs among Lebanese secondary physics teachers. A sample of 141 secondary physics teachers was assessed for their ICTs’ attitude using a Likert type questionnaire. The questionnaire focused on the teachers’ effect towards ICT, aware of usefulness and their confidence to use ICT. This research paper discussed the overall profile of physics teachers’ attitude towards ICT implementation and the difference in teachers’ attitude towards ICT among teachers’ gender, years of experience and age. The results of both descriptive and inferential statistics showed a positive attitude towards ICT and no gender, years of experience or age differences among physics teachers’ attitudes. Implications for teacher training and suggestions for further research are provided.
