2010 Horizon Report

2010 Horizon Report
The annual Horizon Report describes the continuing work of the New Media Consortium (NMC)’s Horizon Project , a long-running qualitative research project that seeks to identify and describe emerging technologies likely to have a large impact on teaching, learning, research, or creative expression within learning-focused organizations. The 2010 Horizon Report is the seventh annual report in the series.
In reading the 2010 Horizon Report, you will explore the four key trends selected for 2010 which are key in driving technology:
  • The abundance of resources and relationships made easily accessible via the Internet is increasingly challenging us to revisit our roles as educators in sense-making, coaching, and credentialing
  • People expect to be able to work, learn, and study whenever and wherever they want to
  • The technologies we use are increasingly cloud-based, and our notions of IT support are decentralized.
  • The work of students is increasingly seen as collaborative by nature, and there is more cross-campus collaboration between departments.
