Moving Beyond Technology

By Mary Grush, Campus Technology

Under the auspices of the New Media Consortium’s Horizon Project, a hundred thought leaders from 20 countries gathered last January to list the most important metatrends and global challenges facing education in the next 10 years. Their collective insight will help inform a special metatrends edition of the NMC Horizon Report being released this spring. The January discussion referenced 28 metatrends, but NMC identified the 10 most compelling in a communiqué issued about the meeting. “What’s interesting is that the list is not really about technology, per se,” CEO Larry Johnson tells CT. “It’s about how people expect the world to work–such as how they collaborate, or openness as a value.”
