Future Trends in Technology and Education

FTTE logoFuture Trends in Technology and Education is a monthly report.  It surveys recent developments in how education is changing, primarily under the impact of digital technologies.  Its purpose is to help educators, policy-makers, and the public think about the future of teaching, learning, research, and institutions.

Every month FTTE aggregates recent developments, checking them against previously-identified trendlines.  As certain trends build in support and significance, the report recommends watching them for future impact.  FTTE also notes trends which appear to be declining in significance.

Each report appears during the first week of the month.  The format is simple: a bulletin written in condensed prose, a pdf document (about eight-ten pages, roughly 2,000 words excluding footnotes) emailed to individual subscribers.  It is mostly text, with some graphics.  Every single item is backed up by footnoted research, often accessible through the open Web.
