Whereas EMFFE was a group of wise men and women reviewing possibilities in the use of extant learning technologies and then designing developmental frameworks to scaffold these possibilities, digital practitioner revealed already existing, transformational digital practice from a bottom-up perspective. Where national education policy is about providing standardised “solutions” to what the future looks like (i.e., around centralised learning management systems), “The Digital Practitioner” survey discovered changing practice on the ground and provided new concepts for describing this work. The critical discovery was that of the use of “personal” technologies (rather than business or “learning” technologies) driving change in learning. The digital practitioner emerges as a craft professional who uses their personal curiosity to redesign learning delivery. This is best described as co-creating artfully crafted, student-centred, learning experiences. This chapter describes the digital craft professional of the future, nascent now.
