Abstract

The integration of technology in language learning is not something new in the formal education context. This study explores the challenges and opportunities in real teaching and learning experiences toward the use of Google Docs Sharing for real-time feedback in writing task applied in inclusive lower secondary level (Year 6 to Year 8) context. Through observation and experiment in English Second Language (ESL) class at Jakarta Multicultural School (JMS), this study will evaluate the challenges for students to understand the real-time feedbacks, the opportunities to apply this method in inclusive classroom with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) students, and the students' perspective upon the lesson. The interviews will be conducted with ESL students (special needs and non-special needs students), other ESL teachers and shadow teacher (an assistant teacher who helps special needs student) of ASD students. The research result will be completed after the second-semester finish and all the writing task cycles from all lower secondary levels have been done.
