Technology Outlook > Norwegian Schools 2013-2018


Horizon report

cover_-_horizon.norway_2013_tech_outlook_v1_norwegianThis is a collaborative research effort between the New Media Consortium (NMC) and the Norwegian Centre for ICT in Education.  In the effort that ran from September through October 2013, the carefully selected group of 38 experts who contributed to this report considered hundreds of relevant articles, news, blog posts, research, and project examples as part of the preparation that ultimately pinpointed the most notable emerging technology topics, trends, and challenges for Norwegian schools over the next five years. This report informs education leaders about significant developments in technologies supporting primary and secondary education Norway. Twelve emerging technologies are identified across three adoption horizons over the next one to five years, as well as key trends and challenges expected to continue over the same period, giving educators and key stakeholders a valuable guide for strategic technology planning for Norwegian schools.

Implications for school leaders

Having had the honor of participating in this work I have had time to speculate in what trends we will be seeing in our schools five years from now. And as usual I’m probably much too impatient. But I think the report could be  a way to start some interesting conversations in our schools And some of the questions I have are: How many schools are prepared for what the report predicts will happen in the next year? I know many counties have started with BYOD already. In Akershus this is our first year, and it seems to be working well. Where we need to see a change is probably in the use of “Cloud computing”,” flipped classroom” and” Social media” to connect and to learn. If you could predict the future, where is your school one year from now?
