The research question addressed was, what is one teacher's experience moving into the digital culture? This question was answered by performing an autoethnographic documentation of one teacher's assimilation into the digital culture. Using the reflective theory for transformational learning, the researcher studied how the move into the digital culture prompted self-transformation personally, and as a teacher. The research is focused on three main areas: personal journey, teacher implications, and balance. Many unexpected outcomes and revelations unfolded that revealed profound research on: adult learning, digital media culture, and the role of the teacher in today's changing world.
