In this paper, we present how at-risk students engage with technology in their learning. We report findings from a phenomenological study that explored the educational digital engagement – learning engagement with technology – of five at- risk students attending a public alternative high school. Findings show that their educational digital engagement was varied and differential leading to three different learning paths – corrective, transitional, and transformative. Pedagogical implications are discussed.
