Understanding and Applying the Technology Forecast of the 2010 Horizon Report
Becker, Bernd W.
Behavioral & Social Sciences Librarian, v29 n2 p162-165 2010
At the beginning of each year the New Media Consortium releases the "Horizon Report", which aims to identify and describe emerging technologies that will "likely have a large impact on teaching, learning, or creative inquiry on college and university campuses within the next five years" (Johnson, Levine, Smith, & Stone 2010, 3). In this issue of the "Electronic Roundup" I will highlight four of the "Horizon Report's" emerging technologies (mobile computing, open content, electronic books, and simple augmented reality) while discussing how we might incorporate them into our day-to-day service to patrons.
