While extensive evidence underscores the advantages of incorporating technology into home-school partnerships, there exists a notable gap in understanding the experiences of marginalised families in such tech-integrated collaborations. This phenomenological case study delved into the perspectives and encounters of Indigenous West Papuan parents (n = 22) and teachers (n = 8) of primary school students concerning the utilisation of technology in home-school partnerships. The findings revealed a strong endorsement from both parents and teachers for the integration of technology in their collaborative endeavors. The cultural awareness and technological proficiency of teachers and parents emerged as pivotal factors influencing the array of benefits that technology could deliver. From basic to advanced functions, technology served diverse roles in home-school partnerships, enhancing Papuan parents' engagement in their children’s learning both at school and home. Consequently, the implementation of technology with comprehensive functionalities holds the potential to cultivate culturally responsive home-school partnerships with Indigenous parents.
