When reading the NMC Horizon Report form 2014, it is amazing to understand how much of what they talked about is becoming reality. What I found the most striking was when they were writing about Digital Strategies and Enabling Technologies, in which something new, easier to use, meaningful and more capable is used to transform what we expect. When reviewing lessons for the integration of technology, the SAMR model (substitution, augmentation, modification, and redefinition) has been used to outline the progression of a teacher as they continue professional development in teaching and learning. But using digital strategies and enabling technologies, while SAMR can definitely show the development of lessons, but it doesn’t define the professional development that the teacher has had.
