Horizon Report for Technical Teaching Driven by eMadrid Partners
The Electrical and Computer Engineering Department of UNED (Spanish University for Distance Education) in collaboration with the New Media Consortium, the Center for Virtual Education (CSEV) and the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE) – Education Society have created a new report within the popular Horizon Report Project. This report is the first one that forecasts internationally the impact that the new learning technologies will have in techinical education during 2012-2017.
This report, named “Technology Outlook: STEM+ Education 2012-2017”, is the first one of its type in the Horizon Report Project. It focuses specifically on STEM+ education and emerging technologies, which are the main trends and critic challenges. The members of the advisory board were chosen to represent a wide spectrum of experts in STEM areas, including several experts from the eMadrid Consortium (UNED and Carlos III University).
This report is part of a longitudinal research study of emerging technologies that began in March 2002. Since that time and under the banner of the Horizon Project, the NMC and its research partners have held an ongoing series of conversations and dialogs with its advisory boards, conformed by a group that now numbers nearly 500 technology professionals, campus technologists, faculty leaders from colleges and universities, museum professionals, teachers and other school professionals and representatives of leading corporations from more than 30 countries. For more than a decade, these conversations have been mined to provide the insights on emerging technology that are published annually in the NMC Horizon Report series.
