The Future of Training

Do you know the key emerging technologies likely to have considerable impact on teaching, learning, and creative inquiry within higher education?

The annual Horizon Report describes the continuing work of the New Media Consortium's Horizon Project, a research-oriented effort that seeks to identify and describe just such emerging technologies. NMC's Rachel Smith will introduce the six technologies covered in the 2010 Horizon Report and describe the process of identifying and selecting the topics. She will show examples of how each technology is being used in higher education and training. The 2010 Horizon Report is available online at no cost at
