This paper contributes to new understanding of teaching and learning by examining teacher engagement with innovative information and communication technologies. When teachers construct learning by searching for quality digital content through education portals like the Teaching and Learning exchange (TaLe), and expose it on an interactive whiteboard supported by collaborative tools, it has the potential to engage and motivate the 'digital natives'. Explicit examples from the Centre for Learning Innovation's work and research in NSW Department of Education and Training schools and TAFE colleges using these technologies will be discussed.
