About the 2013 Horizon Report


As the centerpiece of NMC's Horizon Project, the NMC Horizon Report series charts the landscape of emerging technologies for teaching, learning and creative inquiry around the globe. Since the launch of the Horizon Project in March 2002, the NMC has held an ongoing series of conversations and dialogs with hundreds of technology professionals, campus technologists, faculty leaders from colleges and universities, and representatives of leading corporations.

Each year, an Advisory Board considers the results of these dialogs and also looks at a wide range of articles, published and unpublished research, papers, and websites to generate a list of technologies, trends, challenges, and issues that knowledgeable people in technology industries, higher education, and museums are thinking about.

This project continues in 2012-13 again with cooperation from the EDUCAUSE Learning Initiative. The 2013 Horizon Project Advisory Board was convened in November 2012 and will be conducting its research and discussion in this wikispace. The NMC Horizon Report > 2013 Higher Education Edition will be released in February, 2013.

Members of the education community are encouraged to follow the Advisory Board's progress as the discussion unfolds and to use the wiki as a resource and reference tool. It is the record of the processes used, materials referenced, research methods, and decisions that were part of creating the NMC Horizon Report > 2013 Higher Education Edition. It is meant to provide a deep resource of materials that will underpin the Report.

Any interested party is encouraged to participate in the Horizon Project, as users of and contributors to the wiki, or by using the project's hashtag on Twitter: #NMChz.
