Directing a Technology Innovation Challenge Grant as well as a Preparing Tomorrow’s Teachers to Use Technology (PT3) Project, plus 35 years of experience in student and teacher education has led me to conclude that teachers need know-how in communicating across boundaries. These boundaries can be found, for example, between teachers and students, teachers and the administration, teachers and parents, and teachers and the political system. The three most important competencies necessary to achieve communication “across boundaries” are: 1) using modern technologies to communicate, 2) the ability to learn from students, and 3) the ability to become agents of change.
