Technology Outlook for International Schools in Asia, 2014. An NMC Horizon Project Regional Report
Johnson, L.; Adams Becker, S.; Cummins, M.; Estrada, V.
New Media Consortium
This report is a collaborative research effort between the New Media Consortium (NMC), Concordia International School Shanghai, and NIST International School in Bangkok, Thailand, to help inform international school leaders in Asia about significant developments in technologies supporting teaching, learning, and creative inquiry in primary and secondary education. The research underpinning the report makes use of the NMC's Delphi-based process for bringing groups of experts to a consensus viewpoint, in this case around the impact of emerging technologies on teaching, learning, and creative inquiry in international schools in Asia (ISA) over the next five years. This document was produced to explore emerging technologies and forecast their potential impact expressly in a primary and secondary education context. In the effort that took place from May through July 2014, a carefully selected panel of experts was asked to consider hundreds of relevant articles, news, blog posts, research, and project examples as part of the preparation that ultimately pinpointed the most notable emerging technology topics, trends, and challenges for international schools in Asia over the next five years. Known as the 2014 Horizon Project ISA Expert Panel, that group of thought leaders consists of distinguished individuals, all highly regarded in their fields. Collectively the panel represents a range of diverse perspectives across the education sector for international schools in Asia. The Expert Panel presents 12 "technologies to watch," and agreed that instilling a school and work/life balance is imperative as technology rapidly evolves and becomes more accessible. The key sections of the report, in general, constitute a reference and straightforward technology-planning guide for educators, researchers, administrators, policy makers, and technologists. It is the hope of the Expert Panel that this research will help to inform the choices that institutions are making about technology to improve, support, or extend teaching, learning, and creative inquiry in international schools in Asia. [Additional support for the production of this report was provided by 21 Century Learning, Canadian International School of Hong Kong, Eduro Learning, Innovative Professional Development, Nanjing International School, Renaissance College Hong Kong, Singapore American School, United World College of South East Asia, and Yokohama International School.]
