Michael Coghlan is seeking feedback on what's up and coming for educational technology in the near and long terms for the next Horizon Report due to come out soon. He will meet us at 13:00 GMT in Elluminate and brainstorm on the topic. More information will be posted soon; meanwhile read Michael's postings to the Webheads list:
The two trends for this round are:
5. Openness - concepts like open content, open data and open resources, along with notions of transparency and easy access to data and information - is moving from a trend to a value for much of the world. As authoritative sources lose their importance, there is need for more curation and other forms of validation to generate meaning in information and media.
6. Legal notions of ownership and privacy lag behind the practices common in society. In an age where so much of our information, records, and digital content are in the cloud, and often clouds in other legal jurisdictions, the very concept of ownership is blurry.
What are the implications for each of these trends in your institution?
What are you doing already to accommodate these trends? Or, what could you do to accommodate them?
When? 13:00 GMT
Where: Blackboard Collaborate (Elluminate)
