The Innovative Teacher Awards day in Birmingham today gave a fantastic insight into the ideas and approaches of the leading users of educational ICT.
The day prompted me to ask ‘ What’s next?’, and this evening I’ve been browsing some of the publications by the New Media Consortium (NMC).
Here is their report for 2009 – 2009-Horizon-Report
Each year the ‘New Media Consortium’ produces this fairly detailed report.
If you’re planning the future of ICT in your school, then this report is worth a look. It’s certainly worth browsing their website for older reports and comparing their forecasts with the solutions being shown by the leading schools.
It’s also worth noting that these emerging technologies are now being seen in the context of schools – previously the balance / emphasis was universities 🙂
