Becta: Emerging technologies for learning 2008

‘Emerging Technologies for Learning’ has recently been published by Becta (the British Educational Communications and Technology Agency) and is available for download. The report “aims to help readers consider how emerging technologies may impact on education in the medium term”. While it doesn’t actually define ‘medium term’, the majority of technologies discussed are available now with some already being piloted on a small scale.

Articles covered include:

  • Growing up with Google
  • Mobile and wireless technology
  • Gaming and virtual worlds and
  • Interactive displays and next generation interfaces
