The pre-release of the 2010 Horizon report is now available and ACU has two mentions in the prestigious report that looks to that identify and describe emerging technologies likely to have a large impact on teaching, learning, or creative inquiry on college and university campuses within the next five years.

This years report points to the following predictions:

Time-to-adoption: one Year or Less

  • Mobile Computing
  • Open Content

Time-to-adoption: Two to Three Years

  • Electronic Books
  • Simple Augmented Reality

Time-to-adoption: four to five Years

  • Gesture-Based Computing
  • Visual Data Analysis

While these predictions are interesting in themselves almost all except for the Visual Data Analysis all are somewhat or totally dependent on Mobile Learning.

More to come…

The full report will be released by the end of January.
