ghbrett's insight:

This article is an interpretation of the New Media Consortium's 2013 report series ( http://www.nmc.org/pdf/2013-horizon-report-HE.pdf ). It presents brief summaries of the 10 emergent technologies within a 1 to 5 year time frame. However, the visible infographic is targeted at section Six - Learning Analytics. There are a number of other comments that go more in depth than I am able, so I'd recommend having a look at them below.

Napster, Udacity, and the Academy -- Clay Shirky

"Once you see this pattern—a new story rearranging people’s sense of the possible, with the incumbents the last to know—you see it everywhere. First, the people running the old system don’t notice the change. When they do, they assume it’s minor. Then that it’s a niche. Then a fad. And by the time they understand that the world has actually changed, they’ve squandered most of the time they had to adapt.

 

It’s been interesting watching this unfold in music, books, newspapers, TV, but nothing has ever been as interesting to me as watching it happen in my own backyard. Higher education is now being disrupted; our MP3 is the massive open online course (or MOOC), and our Napster is Udacity, the education startup.

 

We have several advantages over the recording industry, of course. We are decentralized and mostly non-profit. We employ lots of smart people. We have previous examples to learn from, and our core competence is learning from the past. And armed with these advantages, we’re probably going to screw this up as badly as the music people did."

NOTE: A well written cautious piece about the barriers to diffusion of new media, new technology, and new ways to teach, learn, or train. Definitely worth reading.

NMC Horizon Report > 2013 Higher Education Edition

NMC Horizon Report > 2013 Higher Education Edition | Education Tech & Tools | Scoop.it

"The NMC Horizon Report > 2013 Higher Education Edition is a collaborative effort between the NMC and the EDUCAUSE Learning Initiative (ELI), an EDUCAUSE Program.

 

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
- 4-5 years: 3D Printing and Wearable Technology

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 World Beyond the Word
August 19, 2012
Keynote presentation delivered by Stephen Downes to Destination: Innovation, Banff, Alberta.


In order to manage the deluge of data produced by modern technology, a rapidly changing society, and challenging environmental and economic systems, we need to relearn what we understand as social and scientific literacy. The students of today and the innovators of tomorrow will speak languages we barely recognize today. What are the fundamentals of these new literacies, how do we learn them and teach them, and how do they redefine innovation in the future? In this talk Stephen Downes describes a future in which learning is a creative act and the environments and technologies that will be needed to support this learning.
