The annual Horizon Report (now in its seventh year of publication) describes the continuing work of the New Media Consortium's Horizon Project, a research-oriented effort that seeks to identify and describe these emerging technologies.

Alan Levine will introduce the six technologies covered in the 2011 Horizon Report and describe how they identify and select the topics. He will show examples of how each technology is being used in higher education and training. In addition, he will provide a live demo of the new Horizon Project Navigator (, a web-based dynamic database of all past and ongoing Horizon Project research.
