The Learning to Teach with Technology Studio was developed in response to the needs of teachers in moving beyond the first stage of technology-based professional development by engaging teachers in a directed inquiry course that leads them through the development of an inquiry-oriented, technology-enhanced product to use in their classrooms with their students. The current study considers what happens when teachers are given the opportunity to "own" their learning - that is, they are given the opportunity to select their learning experience and to shape it for themselves.
