Under the umbrella of the NMC Horizon Report, The NMC has launched the Technology Outlook, a new series of regional analyses aimed specifically at understanding both local and global differences in technology uptake, as well as the current and future state of education in different parts of the world. These publications are a product of collaborations between the NMC and innovative organizations across the world that seek to leverage the well-known medium of the NMC Horizon Report to bring important research, trends, and challenges in their regions to light.

The fact that you are reading this post means you're interested in digital literacy, right? We sure are. And, at the risk of sounding like a UFO enthusiast, let me say we are not alone.

The NMC Horizon Report > Edición Iberoamericana, a global research effort led by the NMC in collaboration with the Universitat Oberta de Catalunya (UOC), is now available in both English and Catalan. Originally released in late 2010, the report identifies the emerging technologies, key trends, and challenges that are impacting learning and creative inquiry in Latin America, Spain, and Portugal.
The report has already been downloaded all over the world and has been the subject of countless presentations and campus discourse. The two new versions will extend the content to an even broader audience.

Okay all you artsy/techy hybrids, this is your moment in the sun! As you may already know, we just released The NMC Horizon Report: 2011 K-12 Edition, detailing six technologies that are about to make a huge impact on education. What's so interesting to me is that some technologies have really transformed the way we communicate with each other. Take, for instance, mobiles and social media.

When you only have 140 characters to say something important, do you really need that extra exclamation point?

We are pleased to announce that the Advisory Board for the 2010 NMC Horizon Report: K12 Edition has selected the six topics for this year's report:
