6 Technologies That Will Change Higher Education

6 Technologies That Will Change Higher Education | Online Instruction | Scoop.it
The New Media Consortium and EDUCAUSE Learning Initiative (ELI) have jointly released the tenth NMC Horizon Report 2013 Higher Education Edition. This annual report describes the findings of ongoing research projects designed to identify new technologies that are likely to impact education in the coming years. In years past, crazy new-fangled items like ‘the internet’ and ‘laptop computers’ have topped the lists of would-be technology winners. This year, the Horizon Report has identified 6 technologies that will change higher education. The report identifies the technologies, and then separates them into three timeframes (called Horizons) that they think will match when each technology will enter mainstream use. Larry Johnson, chief executive officer of the NMC, released a statement about the report, saying,“Campus leaders and practitioners across the world use the report as a springboard for discussion around significant trends and challenges.” This year, “…the biggest trend identified by the advisory this year reflects the increasing adoption of openness on and beyond campuses, be it in the form of open content or easy access to data. This transition is promising, but there is now a major need for content curation.” The group has identified MOOCs and tablet computing as technologies expected to enter mainstream use in the first horizon (timeframe of one year or less), games/gamification and learning analytics for the second horizon (two to three years), and 3-D printing and wearable technologies for the third horizon (4-5 years).

Turning back the clock on lifelong learning: The paradox of MOOCs

Turning back the clock on lifelong learning: The paradox of MOOCs | Online Instruction | Scoop.it

... Those unwilling to accept this “disruptive innovation” are seen as modern Luddites whose static, cognitive world view simply will not encompass the power of teaching and learning through technology. While the increased access to learning through technology is to be applauded and is the logical extension of American higher education’s balance between democracy and meritocracy...
