We present a case study analyses of teacher empowerment and student learning through Constructionist engagement with computational technologies and learning about learning itself. Looking beyond how a teacher overcomes hesitations about new technologies, we consider how he redefines his own understandings of learning as he begins to use computational technologies in working alongside his students. The teacher's emerging self-reflective practice and heightened self-esteem enable him to better understand the multifaceted structure of the learning situation and his own relations to its social, cognitive, and affective aspects.
