The 2011 Horizon Report, a collaborative initiative of the New Media Consortium (NMC) and the EDUCAUSE Learning Initiative (ELI) is now available for free download from:
Each year the report identifies and describes key trends that a group of experts believe will have an impact on teaching, learning and creative inquiry. This year, some of those trends are: electronic books, mobiles, augmented reality, game-based learning, gesture-based computing, and learning analytics.
I highly recommend this report for those who wish to get a concise overview of important trends; in addition, the report includes examples of existing uses of the technologies it highlights and provides links to additional materials. Full disclosure – I served as a member of the Advisory Board for the second year.
