Trends via NMC

Just read a post by Judy O’Connell on her Hey Jude blog stating that the New Media Consortium has the Technologies on the Horizon report out. So off I went to their wiki.

This 32 page report (download) is a good read for those of us working to prepare the next generations. It describes 6 areas of emerging technologies that will influence higher education (and via the domino theory, us also). It reviews key trends in the practice of teaching, learning and creativity and ranks those considered most important.

The Six areas:

  1. User-Created Content
  2. Social Networking
  3. Virtual Worlds
  4. The New Scholarship and Emerging Forms of Publication
  5. Massively Multiplayer Educational Gaming

Now that makes you think – I recommend it as bedtime reading.
