Abstract: Present study sets out to investigate the attitude/opinion of university students regarding application of emerging technologies (iPad) in the context of ESL (English as second language) classrooms in Pakistan. The study was delimited to students of Punjab University (PU, a public sector university) and Beaconhouse National University (BNU, a private sector university), both top rated universities of Lahore and where English language teaching is given preference. The data was collected from 45 students of PU and 35 students of BNU via random sampling techniques. Collected data was organized and prepared for computer analysis with Statistical Package for Social Science (SPSS) version (16.0). Mean and Standard Deviation (SD) were calculated in order to describe opinions while t- test and ANOVA were applied to identify difference in opinion of respondents. Findings illustrated the significance of iPad employment in the face of improving level of learners’ motivation and concentration and rendering them more autonomy, ingenuity, exposure and versatility.
