For the past 11 years, The New Media Consortium (NMC) in collaboration with EDUCAUSE has published the Horizon Report. The Horizon Report identifies and describes “…emerging technologies likely to have an impact on learning, teaching, and creative inquiry in education…”
This year’s report highlights six emerging trends and predicts when these trends will create change, in the next 1-2 years, 3-5 years, or 5 plus years. There are two trends in each group. The trends that are identified as having significant impact in the next 1-2 years are “Online, Hybrid, and Collaborative Learning” and “Social Media Use in Learning.” To read more about these emerging trends or to read the entire report, please select the links below.
To discuss how these emerging trends may be incorporated into your situation, please contact the Fisher ITS Helpdesk.
