Educators recognize that they need to create new learning and teaching environments where the curriculum and instructional tools reflect today's world. Schools are full of students who want to engage, socialize, communicate, create, and collaborate in meaningful ways that reflect the world in which they live. How can education re-create itself to engage these learners and keep up with the pace of this change? What can educators do in response to change and to reach their digital students? These questions led a group of 17 educators (university professors, directors of technology, classroom teachers, tech coordinators, library media specialists, corporate representatives, researchers, ISTE's president, and two board members) from the United States and Norway on a two-week study tour to Australia to seek answers. This article describes how educators on ISTE's Australian Study Tour discovered ways to create new learning and teaching environments where curriculum and instructional tools meet the digital age.
