Abstract: This paper engages a phenomenological analysis of the interface, that is, the site of teachers' and students' everyday, pre-reflective involvements with digital media technologies. I explore the pedagogical significances of this intimate, ready-to-hand human-technology relationship that we have developed with our educational technologies--a relationship that is daily extending and transgressing traditional social and teacher-student boundaries, and reconstructing 21st century classrooms as fluid architectures inhabited by cyborgian students and teachers.
