A new multi-authored report online from BECTA:
‘Emerging technologies for learning’ aims to help readers consider how emerging technologies may impact on education in the medium term. The publications are not intended to be a comprehensive review of educational technologies, but offer some highlights across the broad spectrum of developments and trends. It should open readers up to some of the possibilities that are developing and the potential for technology to transform our ways of working, learning and interacting over the next three to five years.
The different chapters each have a different author, with contributors including Marc Prensky and Stephen Downes. The page also includes last year’s report and a link to related discussion forums. As per usual, I haven’t managed read any of the chapters yet – but hope to do so soon-ish.
