2012 Horizon Report

Horizon Report logoThe report on social learning analytics that I wrote with Simon Buckingham Shum last year has been cited in the 2012 Horizon Report. Each year, the Horizon Project describes findings from the NMC Horizon Project, a decade-long research project designed to identify and describe emerging technologies likely to have an impact on learning, teaching, and creative inquiry in higher education.

Learning analytics first figured in the report last year. This year, our paper is one of six articles and resources recommended for those who wish to learn more about learning analytics. The report says:
