AmritaCREATE's Tablet Computing showcased in the NMC Horizon Report
AmritaCREATE's work with tablet computing was showcased in the NMC Horizon Report, 2013 Higher Education Edition. Last year, the Horizon Report had included AmritaCREATE's Adaptive Learning and Multilingual Collaborative learning platform.
The New Media Consortium (NMC) and EDUCAUSE Learning Initiative (ELI) have jointly released the tenth edition that describes annual findings from the NMC Horizon Project, a decade-long research project designed to identify and describe emerging technologies likely to have an impact on learning , teaching, and creative inquiry in education. Six emerging technologies are identified across three adoption horizons over the next one to five years, as well as key trends and challenges expected to continue over the same period, giving campus leaders and practitioners a valuable guide for strategic technology planning
This year’s NMC Horizon Report identifies massively open online courses(MOOCs) and tablet computing as technologies expected to enter mainstream use in the first horizon of one year or less. Games and gamification and learning analytics are seen in the second horizon of two to three years; 3D printing and wearable technology are seen emerging in the third horizon of four to five years.
