From a News Release/Summary:
The New Media Consortium (NMC) and the Smart Learning Institute (SLI) of Beijing Normal University are releasing the 2016 NMC Technology Outlook for Chinese K-12 Education at a special conference in Beijing.
This inaugural report focuses on Chinese schools, and it describes the findings of the NMC Horizon Project, an ongoing research project designed to identify and describe developments in technology likely to have an impact on teaching, learning, and creative inquiry. The report has been published in both Chinese and English.
Nine trends are identified as very likely to drive technology planning and decision-making over the next five years.
The panel pinpointed the “Shift from Students as Consumers to Students as Creators” as the top long-term impact trend driving technology adoption in Chinese K-12 education for the next five or more years. The “Growing Focus on Measuring Learning” is the top mid-term impact trend expected to drive technology use for the next three to five years, and the “Proliferation of Open Educational Resources” is the top short-term impact trend anticipated to affect Chinese schools for the next one to two years. These key trends, along with six others, are detailed in the report.”
