Mar: The Horizon Report, Technology, and Learning: What’s in It for Libraries (Florida Library Webinars)

2:00 pm - 3:00 pm

Keeping up with technology trends, challenges, and innovations in learning environments—academic, museums, and libraries included—can feel overwhelming even to those of us immersed in those topics every day. The New Media Consortium (NMC) annual reports on technology in learning, therefore, are among those must-read research-based resources that help us see the tech forest for the trees and provide up-to-date information that can be useful to us and to those we serve.

This one-hour overview focuses on the NMC Horizon Report > Higher Education edition, scheduled for release in February 2014, to explore how the key trends, significant challenges, and important developments in educational technology affect library staff and users alike—and prepare us to better function in our roles as trainer-teacher-learners.

Participants, by the time they leave the session, will:

    Be able to identify key trends, challenges, and technologies in learning environments over the next five years
    Be able to draw parallels between trends, challenges and technologies in libraries and other learning organizations
    Have at least three new resources to explore in their efforts to become more familiar and conversant with trends, challenges and technologies in training-teaching-learning
