This paper examines the experiences of beginning teacher education students in an inquiry-based, technology rich course that has been designed to change the work that both teachers and students do as they explore contemporary issues in the profession of teaching. Analysis of these experiences is framed by concepts from cross-cultural psychology, often used to understand experiences of individuals who abruptly find themselves living in a different culture. The premise is that classrooms characterized by changed teaching and learning design and activity are, in fact, "new cultures" to those who participate in them.
