This paper addresses a need for going beyond subject matter, pedagogy and technology principles and knowledge in order to create a quality learning environment. The need for a deeper layer of knowledge and understanding is needed. Various approaches to develop a deeper layer are discussed such as character education and dispositions. While the concern for moral and character education and a professional teaching disposition speak to a more profound level of preparation than technology, pedagogy and content, I believe they are manifestations of this even deeper layer, the layer reflected in the concern for the spiritual, for the primal motivation in each of us. This transcendent center of care calls upon and can enhance all of the others. Yet our school system, at all levels, gives almost no attention to matters of spirituality. This growing interest to include spiritual aspects of a learner’s life is in the school setting discussed. This is followed by a discussion of ways to begin to examine an integration or convergence of technology, learning and the soul.
