Abstract
In this paper, the author argues that technology use in education has focused on combating instructional problems and inefficiencies. While technology use for such purposes is viable and important, the author proposes that practitioners and researchers in field utilize emerging technologies as a means to provide opportunities for personally relevant and meaningful transformation. The author discusses strategies for providing such opportunities and presents examples of potentially transformative learning activities and environments. The paper concludes with caveats regarding the pursuit of transformation in technologyenhanced learning environments.
