The application process is now open for schools who wish to participate in the project in February - May 2014. Please note entry to this project will be by subscription. More information below.
In this project, students will study and "mash up" the results of the yearly Horizon Report from the New Media Consortium and Educause and Tapscott's book Grown Up Digital: How the Net Generation is Changing Your World. Students will study the current research and create wiki-reports with their student partners around the world analyzing current trends and projecting future happenings based upon this collaborative analysis. This project is managed by the students who assume roles such as project manager, assistant project manager, and editors of the various wikis.
After compiling their wiki reports based upon current research, and encouraged by "expert advisors" (subject matter experts in the industry), students will then create a video based upon their research in current global technological trends. It is an exciting project because it brings educators to the cusp of educational technology change and exposes the thoughts of students have about current technologies.
