Do You Get IT? . . . . . . . . What is IT?

I have had a number of discussions lately with people about people who “Get IT.”  This has to do with hiring people who “Get IT” or working with people who “Get IT” or helping other educators “Get IT.”

The $64 question is . . .  “What is IT?”
IT can mean a lot of things in the context of education:
IT can mean Information Technologies.
IT can mean Instructional Technologies. 
 IT can be the name of a wonderful book by Stephen King.

But NOT in this case. In this case, IT refers to a new paradigm for teaching and learning. 

It has to do with using technology to provide previously elusive opportunities for learners.
It has to do with a new perspective on teaching by empowering students through providing them challenge-based learning opportunities.
But . . .             What Do YOU Think?
How do you describe IT to your colleagues when you are advocating IT?
Please tell me what you think?  Leave your comments on your perception of IT. 
Let’s see what the Blogosphere of educators who read this blog believe.
What’s YOUR opinion?
