Methodology Summary of methodology : Monitor signals of developments and trends: Quantative : e.g. numerical analyses Qualitative: e.g. literature surveys Document mechanisms used for observing trends Provide interpretations of trends & implications e.g. see OUseful and UK Web Focus blogs Use systematic processes within organisation / sector: Delphi process Scenario planning 3

Finding Our More:

Finding Our More NMC (New Media Consortium): An international community of experts in educational technology Includes: Practitioners who work with new technologies every day Visionaries who are shaping the future of learning at think tanks, labs, research centers Staff and board of directors Produces many useful reports including 2013 Horizon Project Summit report on Future of Education 4

The 2012 Horizon Project Retreat :

The 2012 Horizon Project Retreat Top 10 trends: The world of work is increasingly global and increasingly collaborative. People expect to work, learn, socialise , and play whenever and wherever they want to. The Internet is becoming a global mobile network — and already is at its edges. The technologies we use are increasingly cloud-based and delivered over utility networks, facilitating the rapid growth of online videos and rich media. 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. 5 Bed?!

Real challenges of access, efficiency, and scale are redefining what we mean by quality and success. The Internet is constantly challenging us to rethink learning and education, while refining our notion of literacy. There is a rise in informal learning as individual needs are redefining schools, universities, and training. Business models across the education ecosystem are changing. 6 Leaving the institution
