  • Technogogy
    Nik Peachey http://www.technogogy.org.uk/
    Zaid Ali Alsagoffdefines technogogy as "the convergence of technology, pedagogy and content in the transformative use of technology to foster learning," http://elearningmalaysia.blogspot.com/2008/01/technogogy-convergence-of-content.html

  • Elucidating the Ineffable
    It's because computers are anything but isolating, because they bring people together in innumerable modalities, that they are transformative in learning.  Yet …this is not widely accepted as fact due to the ineffable nature of the process.  Technogogy has to be experienced to be understood, and many simply do not grant themselves the opportunity to experience it; therefore they never achieve that aha! moment.
