Making predictions about technologies to support can be tricky. Using the New Media Consortium's Horizon Report is one way to get a snapshot of the technologies and practices to expect on campus. The Horizon Report picks six technologies likely to have an impact on higher education with horizons of a year or less, two to three years, and four to five years. The 2008 list: grassroots video, collaboration webs, mobile broadband, data mashups, collective intelligence, and social operating systems (see http:// wp.nmc.org/horizon2008/). Bring your questions, experiences, and ideas to this thoughtful conversation that will help us map our way into the future.
