The use of digital tools in English learning is unavoidable due to the promotion of 21st century learning. With the major aim to swift the learning objectives, 21st century learning with its ensembles of multiple skills attempts to promote production learning rather than consumption learning. Thus, this research serves the purpose of providing evidence and references on how an online classroom media, Schoology, creates the environment of 21st century learning in an Indonesian EFL junior high school setting. This case study employed 9 participants consisting of 9th grade students. They were involved in two discussion sessions, namely (1) face-to-face discussion and (2) online discussion through Schoology with plastic waste as the main topic. To go further about the participants- perceptions about the research, questionnaires were distributed after the discussion sessions conducted. The findings scope students- language performance, classroom participation, content analysis/improvements, and their perceptions about the lesson topic and learning using Schoology itself. It is revealed that Schoology has the chance of becoming a 21st century learning environment, as it derived positive response from the participants of the research, though it still needs further effort to implement digital-based learning in EFL junior high school context.
