This paper is a work-in-progress report on an approach to help teachers break the traditional barriers to learning that occur under transformative learning conditions. Teachers typically want to be taught innovative new techniques using the learning approaches that they have successfully used in the past. Introducing unfamiliar new learning approaches coupled with often-intimidating new technologies seems to be at odds with the objective of helping teachers apply constructivist methods including modeling the desired learning outcomes through their own examples. The authors explore the use of a metaphoric scaffolding technique that disguises much of the learning environment in order to give teachers a more familiar and comfortable realm in which to achieve learning success. As success is achieved, the teachers are led back through the metaphor to understand how they have used the new technology to produce tools that will be of direct benefit to them in the classroom.
