Six “Key Emerging Technologies” for Higher Ed Profiled in the 2008 Horizon Report

The annual Horizon Report describes the continuing work of the New Media Consortium (NMC)’s Horizon Project, a five-year qualitative research effort that seeks to identify and describe emerging technologies likely to have a large impact on teaching, learning, or creative expression within learning-focused organizations.
The 2008 Horizon Report, the fifth in this annual series, is produced as a collaboration between the
NMC and the EDUCAUSE Learning Initiative (ELI), an EDUCAUSE program.
To create the 2008 Horizon Report, the 36 members of the 2008 Advisory Board engaged in a comprehensive review and analysis of research, articles, papers, and interviews; discussed existing applications and brainstormed new ones; and ultimately ranked the items on the list of more than 80 technologies that emerged for their potential relevance to teaching, learning, and creative expression. The 2008 Advisory Board included representatives from seven countries—the United States, Canada, the United Kingdom, Spain, Australia, Japan, and China. Most of their work took place online over the fall of 2007. The board used a variety of collaboration tools, including a special wiki site dedicated to the project.
The 32-page 2008 Horizon Report is free and has been released with a Creative Commons license to facilitate its widespread use, easy duplication, and broad distribution.
