Horizon Report

A version of the 2009 Horizon Report is now available for viewing on the web. For those unfamiliar with the Horizon Report, the description posted on their website says::

  • The annual Horizon Report describes the continuing work of the New Media Consortium (NMC)’s Horizon Project, a long-running qualitative research project that seeks to identify and describe emerging technologies likely to have a large impact on teaching, learning, research, or creative expression within learning-focused organizations.

It is quite interesting to see the list of what they feel are 6 emerging technologies that will make their way into mainstream use over the next few years:

  • Mobiles (1 year or less)
  • Cloud Computing (1 year or less)
  • Geo -Everything (2-3 years)
  • the Personal Web (2-3 years)
  • Semantic-Aware applications (4-5 years)
  • Smart Objects (4-5 years)
