Horizon Reports redux

I’ve written before about the Horizon Reports. Those currently available are, as always, rich sources for considering what the near future (0-5 years) seems to hold for educators. You’ll need to create a free account to download them.

For higher education, there are three documents. I’d suggest reading at least the executive summary of the full Higher Ed report which goes into detail about 2 trends forecast to be important in each in three time ranges – one year or less, two to three years, four to five years. Supplement it with the Shortlist, which discusses 4 trends in each of those time ranges.

For K-12 educators, there’s the 2011 Horizon K-12 Report. Again, I’d suggest at least the executive summary. I found the Challenge Based Learning Report, which discusses experience with implementation projects, quite interesting as well.

There are links to past years’ reports and ones that cover other arenas – non-US regions, for museums, and more.



About Sigurd

Moved to rural Vermont in 1998, recently semi-retired. Intellect-oriented person (I spend a lot of time in my mind, have worked to broaden, regularly, the boundaries of what I pay attention to). One of my current interests is Goethe's approach to understanding the structures of the world (Science) and how it is different from Newton's approach. Goethe tried to stay open to what more the world might tell him of its nature, whereas Newton conceived frameworks that them became a window through which nature is viewed and understood.
