Of course, the information obtained will have the potential to influence the teacher's mindset or the teacher's perspective on something related to education. Therefore, this study aims to find out the roles of computer media in EFL teachers' mindset on teaching. This study used a narrative inquiry research design and used semi-structured interviews with two EFL teachers in Jember to obtain data. The data obtained was analyzed using thematic analysis and succeeded in finding the roles of computer media, including managing time, improving quality of instruction, encouraging active classes, controlling assignments, providing innovation, and tools for interaction.
