Reading the new HORIZON Report for Higher Education 2014, I’m inspired as usual by the work of Educause and the New Media Consortium (NMC). This year’s study continues the direction. In fact, a new framework for presenting challenges and trends accelerating technology adoption and the key technologies for higher education makes the report even more useful for anyone and everyone involved in teaching and learning.
The annual Horizon Report is a valuable guide for LIS professors and librarians to emerging technologies and trends. The 2012 report is no exception. It identifies “key drivers of educational technology adoptions for the period 2012 through 2017.” These can enhance both LIS pedagogy and library service.
