This study was aimed to determine the affectation and behaviors rising from the use of tablet in an integrated learning for grade 1-students and teachers in the primary school. The participants were consisted of 104 teachers and 416 students. Data were collected using questionnaire, where frequency, percentage, mean, standard deviation, t-test, analysis of variance, and chi-square tests were used to determine the statistical significance of data.Results showed that all teachers had been using the tablets in teaching and learning activity for 1 to 2 years, while the students began to use tablet when they enrolled in grade 1 class. The time required for the given activities were 10 to 30 minutes per round. An affectation from using tablets for teachers yielded a high score whereas a moderate score level was found in students' activities, and the affectation between them was statistically significant difference at the level of p = 0.05. The gender, social activity, language, teaching workload, age and skills of teacher were differently affected on psychological conditions and overall behaviors. Students' skills in using tablet were differently affected in all aspects. Internet connectivity to the wifi/3G was differently affected the overall and learning ability. The correlation between behaviors and affectation on teachers and students in using tablet was statistically significant difference at the level of p = 0.05. The times, duration, time interval, places, and frequency in using tablet were correlated with physical conditions, social and language skills, and learning ability.
