Abstract

In the last decade, we have seen how cloud computing, video hosting and interactive web technologies have deeply impacted education. Kahn Academy, cMOOCs, xMOOCs, and SPOCs are some of the new formats that appeared. It is time to pay attention to technologies that are maturing and getting ready to impact education in the next decade. We live in times of exponential change, where the Gardner hype cycles get shorter and shorter, so it is particularly important to think ahead.
