Join Patricia Anderson (@pfanderson) and Kimberley Barker (@KR_Barker) for a discussion of the 2014 Horizon Report.

Technology highlighted in the report includes:
Flipped classroom, Learning Analytics, 3D printing, Games & Gamification, Quantified Self, and Virtual Assistants.

Key trends accelerating adoption include: growing ubiquity of social media; integration of online, hybrid, and collaborative learning; rise of data-driven learning assessment; shift from students as consumers to students as creators; agile approaches to change; evolution of online learning.

Significant challenges to adoption include: low digital fluency of faculty; relative lack of rewards for teaching; competition from new models of education; scaling teaching innovations; expanding access; keeping education relevant.

As the report is so dense, we won’t be able to cover everything; if there are particular technologies, accelerants, and barriers that you want to be sure are included, please tweet us! Have a look:
We’re looking forward to being with you :)
