From Horizon Project
Here's a spot for discussing what happens when folks present the Horizon Report to live audiences.
Educause Live On June 5, 2008, Julie Little and I will be doing an Educause Live gig on the Horizon Report. It will be using their Adobe Connect setup for the first time, which will enable us to do some real time polling, and hence introduce a bit more interactivity into the mix. [Malcolm]
Midwest Library Technology Conference keynote May 28, 2008 (Alan Levine and Rachel Smith) See Vuvox Collage presentation The 2008 Horizon Report: Key Emerging Technologies as well as wiki page for links mentioned including video interviews with Bryan Alexander (NITLE), Vicki Davis (Flat Classroom Horizon Project), Anu Vendantham & Peter Decherney (UPenn Video Mashup Contest), and George Saltsman (Abilene Christian University iPhone initiative). Included a 15 minute small group discussion on the Research Agenda and collected numerous responses on feedback forms which will be added to wiki. Interesting to note that when groups had to choose a topic, the most talked about ones were the far horizon ones (Social OS and Collective Intelligence)
NITLE Emerging Technology Workshops We reference Horizon with each one.
Camosun College Distributed Education Days Links from presentation, slides also here (Scott Leslie). Somewhere between receptive and stunned silence (but enthusiastic recognition by IT director of the sustainability stresses to their current models that general pace of innovation is causing). (N.B. I also gave the talk two more times for BC audiences, at the IT4BC conference (30 attendees) and the BC Ed Tech Users Group Spring '08 Gathering (30 attendees))
NERCOMP SIG, 2008. Wiki page, with outline and links. (Phil Long, Bryan Alexander). 8 Audience was generally receptive. Privacy a major concern. Social operating systems a tricky concept. Gaming: quietly pervasive.
University of Victoria, invited Talk, Feb 25, 2008 (Alan Levine and Scott Leslie). 8 Audience very receptive. We used the notion of the three horizons as a way to get them to talk about what was on their own horizons. They had a hard time getting past stuff that was already a part of the day to day existence, believing that outside tech should or would influence their teaching with technology.
EDUCAUSE ELI Annual Conference January 30, 2008 (Larry Johnson, Rachel Smith, Alan Levine, Cyprien Lomas, Diana Oblinger). Annual presentation of 2008 report, see video archive and slides. Presentation of report, a little bit of Second Life trickery and audience activity of contributing research questions.
What's in Your Horizon? Process, Technologies, and Impact of the 2007 Horizon Report, CNI Project Briefing, April 2007 (Alan Levine, Bryan Alexander, Cyprien Lomas) - overview of process and report, did not have great success eliciting response from audience! Presentation available on slideshare http://www.slideshare.net/nmc/whats-in-your-horizon
What's On Your Horizon, Alan Levine, Australia Flexible Learning Framework tour Oct 16 (Melbourne), Oct 18 (Sydney), Oct 22 (Adelaide). Overview of project and process, audience asked for differences from Australia perspective. There is great awareness, familiarity with report. The suggest mobile technology more near term, and more near term use of synchronous meeting technologies (e.g virtual classroom tech like Elluminate).

ELI 2007 needs to be added
