Abstract

English language teachers teaching hearing impairment students too are frequently pressured
from various quarters to produce excellent grades both in quality and quantity in public
examinations by school administrative, parents, district and state education officials as well as
the Ministry of Education in Malaysia. Excellent achievements in public examinations and the
massive advancement in Information Communication Technology have rapidly transformed the
ESL teachers’ work culture at present. Hence, these teachers today cannot escape from the fact
that many classrooms at present are technologically supported and web-connected to support the
21st century classroom teaching. Therefore, a case study was carried out to investigate the ESL
teachers’ Internet integration in the classroom from a sociocultural perspective using Gee’s
D/discourse theory and Social Practice theory. In this study, two ESL teachers teaching in the
same hearing impairment school in northern region of Peninsula Malaysia volunteered for the
semi-structure interview. They included both male and female teachers. Data were triangulated
with observation and document analysis. The findings in this study confirmed that these teachers
teaching in this hearing impairment school integrate the Internet for lesson preparation,
classroom teaching, to fulfill the requirements from the Ministry of Education and for
professional development. The findings of this study have implication for both the ESL teachers
as well as teacher educators in Teachers’ Training Institutions in Malaysia.
