Abstract [en]

Research set in New Zealand, where English for Speakers of Other Languages (ESOL) is recognised as a priority for equitable inclusion, suggests that ESOL teachers find digital inclusion for migrant and refugee students in secondary schools challenging, requiring teacher initiative and energy. The challenges and complexities of these contexts are presented with an analysis of a case of one ESOLteacher, classified as an innovator using Rogers (2003) adoption of innovations categories. This anal-ysis is set within Davis’ (2018) Arena framework of the co-evolution of education and digital technolo-gies to identify the digital tools used to support migrant and refugee students’ learning and teachingand related challenges. This case study illustrates the challenges faced by one ESOL teacher whochose to use technology in his context. The most important finding of this study is that in ESOL con-texts digital tools can support teachers to individualise their teaching to increase inclusion, equity,and access in secondary schools. However, this is only possible with great effort from the teachersand support from their schools and communities.
