The tenth edition describes annual findings from the NMC Horizon Project, a decade-long research project designed to identify and describe emerging technologies likely to have an impact on learning, teaching, and creative inquiry in higher education. 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/

 

The abbreviated list:

 

Time to adoption:

- < 1 year:   Massively Open Online Courses and Tablet Computing
- 2-3 years: Games and Gamification and Learning Analytics

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.

"Big data, 3D printing, activity streams, Internet TV, Near Field Communication (NFC) payment, cloud computing and media tablets are some of the fastest-moving technologies identified in Gartner Inc.'s 2012 Hype Cycle for Emerging Technologies.

 

Gartner analysts said that these technologies have moved noticeably along the Hype Cycle since 2011, while consumerization is now expected to reach the Plateau of Productivity in two to five years, down from five to 10 years in 2011. Bring your own device (BYOD), 3D printing and social analytics are some of the technologies identified at the Peak of Inflated Expectations in this year's Emerging Technologies Hype Cycle" - from source
