New ‘Horizon’ Report

“The 2006 Horizon Report is now available. The 2006 edition is a collaboration between The New Media Consortium and the EDUCAUSE Learning Initiative (ELI), an EDUCAUSE program.
The 2006 Horizon Report, just as has been the case with previous editions of the report, highlights six technologies that the underlying research suggests will become very important to higher education over the next one to five years.
A central focus of the discussion of each technology is its relevance for teaching, learning, and creative expression. Live weblinks to example applications are provided in each section, as well as to additional readings.
You can download a copy here. (32 page PDF)
What’s on the ‘horizon’?
1. Social Computing
2. Personal Broadcasting
3. The Phones in Their Pockets
4. Educational Gaming
5. Augmented Reality and Enhanced Visualization
6. Context-Aware Environments and Devices
Looks right on to me. And their timeline to adoption is 2-5 years -easily within your planning cycle… Don’t let the future happen to you – invent it.
