Last week, the 2008 Horizon Report was released. This is a collaboration with the New Media Consortium (NMC) and EDUCAUSE.

The report “seeks to identify and describe emerging technologies likely to have a large impact on teaching, learning, or creative expression within learning-focused organizations.” The six technologies identified in this year’s report that are predicted to have an impact on teaching and learning include; grassroots video, collaboration webs, mobile broadband, data mashups, collective intelligence, and social operating systems. Challenges as well as examples of how each are being used in organizations similar to those that many of us probably work at, are included. Take a look, or just check out the examples if you don’t have time to read the entire report. Do you see other trends or challenges than the ones listed?
