This study of six secondary schools across Malaysia explores the potential for technology-focused communities of practice and recently-qualified English language teachers to develop and increase technology use in their teaching. Findings suggest, given the right conditions, that such communities of practice can flourish, resulting in greater use of technology in the classroom, and that recently-qualified teachers are capable of taking on a guiding role within these communities. The study will be of interest to teachers, teacher trainers and academics interested in the development of technology use in English language classrooms.
