This study investigates the factors impacting the way secondary mathematics teachers used tablets in their teaching, and the role knowledge exchange played in their developing use. The study introduced a structured method of knowledge exchange, which used guiding questions to facilitate teachers' discussions in order to develop teachers' use of tablets in teaching mathematics. We found seven categories of factors that impact teachers' use of digital tools and that a structured knowledge exchange among teachers can help teachers address underlying issues related to these factors. Implications of teacher professional development and future research are discussed in light of these findings.
