Horizon Report 2006

The annual Horizon Report is a collaborative effort between the New Media Consortium (NMC) and the EDUCAUSE Learning Initiative (ELI). Each year, the report identifies and describes six areas of emerging technology likely to have a significant impact on teaching, learning, or creative expression in higher education within three adoption horizons: a year or less, two to three years, and four to five years.

The areas of emerging technology cited for 2006 are:

  1. Social computing
  2. Personal broadcasting
  3. Cell-phone-accessible educational content and services
  4. Educational gaming
  5. Augmented reality and enhanced visualization
  6. Context-aware environments and devices
