A Back-to-School Review of Ed-Tech Trends | Hack Education

A cheat sheet on trends:



1 Year or Less: 
Mobile Computing
Open Content
2 to 3 Years: 
Electronic Books
Simple Augmented Reality
4 to 5 Years: 
Gesture-Based Computing
Visual Data Analysis

We are gaining experience in a number of these areas, but aren't there yet. Mobile services for the learning commons is my focus this year. Time spent experimenting is what we need to stay on track. Click for the free pdf download. Well worth your time.
