Abstract. This paper is a report on the findings of a study conducted on Smart School trained English Language teachers who had undergone an in-service course on Smart teaching. The case study of three teachers’ experience in using integrative CALL under smart school pedagogy is helping shift the function served by brick-and-mortar classrooms from information delivery to collaboration and discussion. Discourse analysis techniques were used to examine the resulting transcript of texts for supportive, collaborative, and responsive learning environment; some aspects of authentic materials and other variables that foster effective learning within the classroom and school environment. The findings showed that the way they taught in this study refer more specifically to their intent to use integrative CALL pedagogy in the classroom, transfer of integrative CALL pedagogy elements in the classroom, teaching method, and relationship between students’ knowledge of English and teachers’ pedagogy
