This paper suggests that the risks and resistances modelled by both the teaching staff and the learning environment are key factors in assisting pre-service teachers to embed Aboriginal and Torres Strait islander knowledges in their own teaching for the benefit of all students. By undertaking a conversational analysis of chat room support sessions, observations can be made on: (i) the impact and efficacy of ICT use in assisting student reflection, provocation and critique, and (ii) future directions of
