The Horizon Report: 2008 Australia-New Zealand Edition (304K, 32 pp) is available from the NMC website. The 32-page report is free, and has been released with a Creative Commons license to facilitate its use, easy duplication, and broad distribution.

This is a very interesting report and will be of interest to all those following emerging technologies, not just readers down under. The report looks at emerging technologies in three time lines:

One year or less:

Virtual worlds and other immersive digital environments

Cloud-based applications

Two-to-three years


Alternative input devices

Four to five years

Deep tagging

Next-generation mobile

As well as discussion of the relevance of each of these teachnologies to teaching, learning and research, each section has a useful list of online resources on each technology.
