I have been invited to serve on the the Horizon Project Europe Expert Advisory Board for 2014. The Horizon Project Europe is a partnership between the New Media Consortium (NMC) and the European Commission’s Directorates-General on Education and Culture (EAC), along with the Institute for Prospective Technological Studies (IPTS); Inholland University; QIN AS; and CellCove, Ltd. The goal of the project is to create an ongoing process for understanding the trends and challenges impacting strategic technology planning and policy-making in education across Europe. The inaugural report, to be published in early 2014, will focus on schools.
The Horizon Project Europe’s Expert Advisory Board will provide vision and stimulus to the effort, and will be of critical importance as we identify and describe the key emerging technologies that will be influential for teaching, learning, and creative expression in European schools over the next five years.
I am very excited to be involved with such an influential and high-profile project and will of course share the project findings on this blog in due course.
