"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/

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

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.
