This research investigates professional development with Syrian refugee women teachers settled in Lebanon and Sweden. Both countries offer professional training programmes for migrant teachers, enabling them to proceed with their careers. The purpose is to investigate how moving to a new country calls for an opportunity to engage in practice development and the role digital literacy plays in the refugees’ lives. We conducted interviews with twenty women in Lebanon and Sweden. The outcomes show that engaging in further career development is empowering and beneficial for strengthening and developing teaching and learning skills, and mobile literacy plays a role in overcoming the language barrier.
