Horizon Report, 2016 Higher Education Edition - Part 2


Horizon Report, 2016 Higher Education Edition - Part 2
Thursday, March 17, 2016
9:00 pm Eastern / 6:00 pm Pacific
Led by @PFAnderson

Second of three weeks on the Horizon Report. Last week we talked about immediate attention/action issues. This is the "getting edgy" week. 

Mid-Term Impact Trends: Driving Ed Tech adoption in higher education for three to five years
 > Redesigning Learning Spaces, p.12
 > Shift to Deeper Learning Approaches, p.14

Difficult Challenges: Those that we understand but for which solutions are elusive
 > Competing Models of Education, p.26
 > Personalizing Learning, p.28

Time-to-Adoption Horizon: Two to Three Years
 > Augmented and Virtual Reality, p.40
 > Makerspaces, p.42

Be ready to discuss these topics and possible solutions and uses your institution have implemented with available technologies and other resources you've utilized.

March 24th, when we go to the "far out," will be led by @KR_Barker who will discuss items of interest expected to arise in the next 4-5 years. I hope you'll be able to join us over the next few chats as we dissect The Horizon Report, 2016 Higher Education Edition.
