Education technology is constantly evolving alongside the development of new tools, processes and resources. Each year, an expert panel of community members publishes the NMC Horizon Report, which lays out the latest trends and developments in EdTech and identifies new impacts on learning, teaching, and creative inquiry.
This year’s key findings include:
- In the short-term, a growing focus on measuring learning and new learning spaces;
- In the mid-term, an increase in open educational resources and the rise of different forms of interdisciplinary studies; and
- In the long-term, advancing cultures of innovation and cross-institution and cross-sector collaboration
The report predicts that analytics technologies and makerspaces will likely influence EdTech in 2019. Within the next five years and beyond, educators can expect to see the adoption of more adaptive learning technologies and artificial intelligence, mixed reality and robotics.
