The change-oriented structure of the knowledge economy of the 21st Century adds new dimensions and components to the already uncertain and complex construction of teacher professional development. Knowledge and usage of emerging technologies in their classroom is one aspect of challenges that today’s teachers face. Based on a comprehensive review of the literature, the current study offers a blended model for integration of multiple technologies into teaching. Recently published relevant articles have been reviewed in this research. Research articles have been organized in three categories: empirical, theoretical, and review studies. Based on the preliminary findings this study offers an emerging model for teacher professional development in blended form with well-developed face-to-face and online components. It is proposed the findings and conclusions from this study might suggest a comprehensive design for planning teacher professional development initiatives.
