Emerging Technologies for Learning (BECTA report)

Have you read this new downloadable report from BECTA, "Emerging Technologies for Learning," on emerging technologies and future trends and their likely impact on education?

Some of the themes are "Mobile technologies: transforming the future of learning"; "The ambient web"; "Online learning in the real world"; "Social networks"; "Web 2.0 technologies adapted for education"; "Collaborative tools"; "The broadband home" and "What has this to do with education?"
Another excellent addition to the growing number of reports supporting the value of emerging technologies enabling 21st century education where personalisation of the learning experience is increasingly possible: "one which places learners at the heart".
Highlights the value of Web 2.0 and social networking.
Added this link to my bookmarks to share more widely.
