Gazing at the Horizon (2010 Report)

Posted by Editor on January 19, 2010

The annual Horizon Report is essential reading and discussion material in educational technology.

The following four trends have been identified as key drivers of technology adoptions for the period 2010 through 2015; they are listed here in the order they were ranked by the Advisory Board.

  1. 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.
  2. People expect to be able to work, learn, and study whenever and wherever they want to.
  3. The technologies we use are increasingly cloud-based, and our notions of IT support are decentralized.
  4. The work of students is increasingly seen as collaborative by nature, and there is more cross campus collaboration between departments.
