Horizon Report - 2013 Higher Education Edition

The Horizon Report Higher Education 2013 -
Emerging Technologies in Higher Education

The recently released NMC Horizon Report - 2013 Higher Education Edition is a collaborative effort between the New Media Consortium (NMC) and the EDUCAUSE Learning Initiative (ELI), an EDUCAUSE Program.

The just-released tenth edition describes the 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.  If you are interested in learning about emerging technologies that will significantly impact higher education over the next five years, then I recommend you read the Executive Summary, Key trends and Significant Challenges sections of the report.  The report can be accessed at

If you do get a chance to read it, please share any thoughts or comments you might have on it.
