Interesting to look at the newest predictions and recommendations from the Horizon Report. Makes me wonder exactly who is really that close to full mobile computing adoption in 2009?
A recent email from EDUCAUSE describes the following:
"The 2010 Horizon Report, a joint undertaking of the EDUCAUSE Learning Initiative (ELI) and the New Media Consortium (NMC), is nearing completion. As you know, the annual Horizon Report identifies six technologies that will be key for teaching and learning in higher education.
As a partner with NMC in the report's preparation, ELI would like to invite you to participate in one of the final stages--gathering examples of the technologies featured in the report. This work can be in almost any form: production or pilot programs, research projects, faculty undertakings, or evaluation/assessment projects. It can involve any of the six technologies listed below. The intent is to give readers a more concrete sense of how these technologies will play out in the context of teaching and learning in higher education.
Here are the six areas identified for this year's report:
* TIME-TO-ADOPTION: ONE YEAR OR LESS
* TIME-TO-ADOPTION: TWO TO THREE YEARS
Simple Augmented Reality
* TIME-TO-ADOPTION: FOUR TO FIVE YEARS
Visual Data Analysis
The time-to-adoption horizon indicates how long the advisory board feels it will be until a significant number of campuses are using each of these technologies broadly. Innovative faculty and campuses are already working in some of these areas, and this is where you come in.
A preview of the 2010 report, containing more detail as well as the trends and challenges presented in the report, is available at http://net.educause.edu/ir/library/pdf/2010HRPreview.pdf"
Do you think we're really that close?
