Horizon Reports


Welcome to the workspace for the Horizon.anz Project, the place for the members of the Horizon.anz Advisory Board to manage the process of selecting the topics for the 2010 Horizon Report: Australia-New Zealand Edition. This edition of the Horizon Report, a project of the The New Media Consortium, will be published in October, 2010. The report focuses on emerging technology and its applications for education (broadly defined) in Australia and New Zealand.

Horizon.anz is a project that applies the process developed for the New Media Consortium's Horizon Project with a focus on emerging technologies for learning institutions in Australia and New Zealand. Members of the Australia-New Zealand education community are encouraged to follow the Advisory Board's progress as the discussion unfolds and to use the wiki as a resource and reference tool.

Introduction to the Horizon Project Wiki

The Sandbox is our primary work area, where you will find links to the areas in which we are actively engaged. You will see it change as we move through the various processes involved in sorting through the technologies and issues we will deal with as we make our way to the final list that we'll feature in the Horizon Report: Australia-New Zealand Edition.

The Final Rankings - final list of topics for the 2010 Report

STATUS: The Advisory Board has completed the final rankings and the final topics for the report are listed below.

The final topics, trends, and challenges are:

Time-to-Adoption Horizon: One Year or Less

Time-to-Adoption Horizon: Two to Three Years

Time-to-Adoption Horizon: Four to Five Years

Key Trends
  • As the availability and use of electronic books continue to grow, the traditional publishing (and textbook) market is undergoing a profound and lasting change.
  • Social and open forms of peer review and scholarship are gradually gaining acceptance.
  • The availability of educational content for mobile devices is increasing as more providers develop for these platforms.
  • The way we think about learning environments is changing.

Critical Challenges
  • Even where technology for learning is strongly promoted, there remains a desperate need for professional development opportunities around emerging technology.
  • There is a conceptual mismatch between pedagogical practice and the design of many emerging technologies that makes it difficult for teachers to appreciate or use new tools.
  • There is a growing need for formal instruction in key new skills, including information literacy, visual literacy, and technological literacy.
  • In today's networked world, learners are placing greater value on knowing where to find information rather than on knowing the information themselves.
