The role of the teacher educator has changed in the information age. The expectation of learning and teaching has moved beyond the Vygotskian term: uchit (learning/teaching) in a traditional university setting. Although, previous presentations have discussed ICT professional development of experienced teachers (Senjov-Makohon 2007, 2006, 2005, 2004 & 2003), the role of the teacher educator has been neglected. Therefore, this paper will discuss the role of the teacher educator in uchit of experienced teachers in a social context. In this research, which is part of a larger study, the role of the teacher educator changed from being the disseminator of information to becoming a participant and facilitator in a community of practitioners.
