    • 1. HORIZON REPORT: IBEROAMERICAN EDITION 2012Technology outlook:Higher Education in Iberoamerica 2012-2017NMC 2012 Summer Conference12-15 June.
    • 2. HORIZON REPORT: IBEROAMERICAN EDITION 2012Intention The Horizon Report Ib is a joint initiative of the eLearn Center, UOC and the New Media Consortium. The Iberoamerican edition of the Horizon Report shares with the rest of reports the intention of: • Describing new and emerging practices and technologies in education. • Describing “change forces” that may affect teaching, learning, research and information management. The Horizon Report.Ib is focused on the specificities of higher education in Iberoamerican countries.
    • 3. HORIZON REPORT: IBEROAMERICAN EDITION 2012Introduction It’s a forecast targeting twelve emerging technologies, as well as the key challenges and trends associated to them, considered to have a great impact on higher education in Latin American countries, Spain and Portugal during next 5 years. The selected technologies are distributed in three horizons according to the time to adoption: One year or less Two to three years Four to five years
    • 4. HORIZON REPORT: IBEROAMERICAN EDITION 2012Introduction The first edition of the Iberoamerican Horizon Report took place in 2010.
    • 5. HORIZON REPORT: IBEROAMERICAN EDITION 2012Advisory Board 45 experts in the innovative use of technology in education from 10 Latin American countries, Spain and Portugal have participated in the Advisory Board the Horizon Report.Ib 2012. The diversity of profiles and trajectories of members of the AB has been crucial in order to build a global and local view of the heterogeneous reality of the iberoamerican countries.
    • 6. HORIZON REPORT: IBEROAMERICAN EDITION 2012Methodology The methodology used is an adaptation of the Delphi technique: a consultation with experts in progressive degrees of depth. From the beginning, the AB members have collaborated online through the wiki http://ibero.wiki.nmc.org/
    • 7. HORIZON REPORT: IBEROAMERICAN EDITION 2012Methodology The selection of the emerging technologies as well as the key challenges and trends was done through a vote. The wording of the draft report has been in charge of the project coordination team. This first version has been reviewed by the AB. After the approval, the Horizon Report: Iberoamerican edition 2012 will be published.

    • 9. HORIZON REPORT: IBEROAMERICAN EDITION 2012Emerging technologies One year or less OPEN CONTENT Understanding of learning as knowledge building process rather than information transmission. Increasing amount of open educational repositories Open diffusion, open collaboration, open education, personalization, information updatingChallenges: cultural change, language,management, content validation and copyright
    • 10. HORIZON REPORT: IBEROAMERICAN EDITION 2012Emerging technologies One year or less MOBILE APPS Access to information anytime, anywhere allows a flexible and personalized learning experience, in which the context is important.Challenges: lack of educational strategies adapted toergonomics and functionality of equipment.
    • 11. HORIZON REPORT: IBEROAMERICAN EDITION 2012Emerging technologies One year or less CLOUD COMPUTING It is a paradigm in which information is stored permanently in Web servers. It offers a greater flexibility to teachers and students, as well as to institutions. Challenges: connectivity and loose of control of the service and the contents.
    • 12. HORIZON REPORT: IBEROAMERICAN EDITION 2012Emerging technologies One year or less COLLABORATIVE ENVIRONMENTS Team working and collaboration is a key skill in current societies. Collaborative problem solving and project based learning in context. Eliminates hierarchies and promotes horizontal relationships. Trends: use of collaborative environments for assisting teaching and learning processes, team work, professional development and collaborative research.
    • 13. HORIZON REPORT: IBEROAMERICAN EDITION 2012Emerging technologies Two to three years PERSONAL LEARNING ENVIRONMENTS PLE are designed according to each user’s goals and it allows self-directed and groupal learning, with a great capacity for flexibility and customization. Students are placed at the centre and are supposed to take an active role in their learning process. Challenges: lack of definition, need of technical solutions, as well as pedagogical strategies.
    • 14. HORIZON REPORT: IBEROAMERICAN EDITION 2012Emerging technologies Two to three years TABLETS They combine characteristics of laptops, smartphones and tablet pc with thousands of apps that allow for a more personalized experience. Its great portability and rich user experience encourages learning beyond the times and spaces of class. Encourages cross learning of basic digital competence.
    • 15. HORIZON REPORT: IBEROAMERICAN EDITION 2012Emerging technologies Two to three years GAME-BASED LEARNING Integration of digital games and the use of learning strategies based on the game in educational experiences.

    • 16. HORIZON REPORT: IBEROAMERICAN EDITION 2012Emerging technologies Two to three years GEOLOCATION Increasingly, the devices we carry with us can locate our position with coordinates. In m-learning projects, geolocation offers an experiential approach to learning linked to the context. Appearance of new forms of mapping. Challenges: need of a widespread use of smart phones and reduction of connectivity costs.
    • 17. HORIZON REPORT: IBEROAMERICAN EDITION 2012Emerging technologies Four to five years LEARNING ANALYTICS They consist of the interpretation of a wide range of data produced and collected on the students to focus on their academic progression.
