Quote of the week: 2010 Horizon Report

The Horizon Report 2010 edition describes emerging technologies. Included in this year’s list is mobile computing, open content, electronic books, visual data analysis, simple augmented reality, and gesture-based computing. The following quote comes from the introductory remarks to the section on Open Content:

“The movement toward open content reflects a growing shift in the way academics in many parts of the world are conceptualizing education to a view that is more about the process of learning than the information conveyed in their courses. Information is everywhere; the challenge is to make effective use of it”.
