This chapter attempts to answer the question: If we were to redesign education not to make historic models of schooling more efficient, but instead to prepare students for the 21st century—simultaneously transforming teaching in light of our current knowledge about the mind— what types of learning environments might sophisticated ICT enable us to create?

Our goal in this chapter is to suggest a strategy for exploring the issues surrounding the preparation of teachers to integrate technology effectively in classrooms to support learning. We do so in the context of our What Works and Why (WWW) project, a multiyear research project that is attempting to examine the instructional and learning experiences of students in eight major teacher preparation programs.

Teaching and learning in out-of-school contexts has a long history of successfully adapting pedagogy to local and current needs of student participants. The innovative uses of technology, the flexible social organization, and the everyday relevance of out-of-school activities make these learning contexts ideal for innovation.

Questions of teacher authority, “coverage” of material, and the isolation of school activities from learning that takes place in other contexts (and vice versa) are all impediments to realizing the transformative potential presented by new learning technologies. The essays in this collection challenge us because they represent the problem as a systemic one: schools, higher education and professional development programs, national policy, all reinforce in each other a resistance to change. Each feels constrained by the actions of the others. No one knows where to start.
