State level technology leadership initiatives in Kansas have created a new level of conversation about learning-an alternative mental model-designed to replace worn out notions now over two centuries old and no longer relevant to twenty-first century learners. This systemic approach to the re-definition of schooling and learning incorporates all levels of the educational process, all custodians of the current process, and all consumers of institutionalized educational services. This paper presents three examples that emphasize the potential of technology for creating an environment wherein this redefinition of learning, and the way we organize for it, can occur by emphasizing leadership in a technologically rich environment. The paper also explores the issues raised by these initiatives, and provides access to relevant web-based resources. It concludes by describing the conceptual linkage between the three projects presented.
