Six emerging technologies are identified across three adoption horizons over the next one to five years, as well as key trends and challenges expected to continue over the same period, giving campus leaders and practitioners a valuable guide for strategic technology planning." from source: http://www.nmc.org/

ghbrett's insight:

The NMC Horizon Report has been a most useful document for me since I first found out about it a couple years ago. I contains information that is relevant to many disciplines, K-12, Higher Education, Corporate and Government Training / Education or for anyone interested in Information, Computer, and Communications Technologies.

The Horizon Report – a Must Read and Resource for Emerging Use of Technology in Education (NMC)

The Horizon Report – a Must Read and Resource for Emerging Use of Technology in Education (NMC) | Education Tech & Tools | Scoop.it

“The NMC’s Horizon Project may very well be producing the single most important body of research into emerging technology within the world of education. With over one million downloads of its 26 editions and 35 translations in the past ten years, the NMC Horizon Report series provides the higher education, K-12, and museum communities across the globe a key strategic technology planning tool that is continuously refreshed and updated. The NMC and the Horizon Project are best known for its flagship Horizon Reports that focus on higher education and K12 globally, but the research into the uptake of technology goes far beyond what is published in those key publications. The NMC does extensive work regionally around the world as well, working with ministries of education and other key groups to produce specialized reports for Latin America, the UK, Australia, and New Zealand, and is currently working on projects in Singapore amd Brazil, and planning projects for both India and Africa. The Horizon research is truly global in scope and reach." - from Source
