Hi fellow forum members in case you haven't picked this up elsewhere. Several forum members i know have contributed to this work. Posted on behalf of my colleague David Ley . current publication is well worth reading and the previous editions are also useful to reflect on how technology has emerged.

Emerging technologies for learning volume 3 (2008)
Becta is pleased to announce that ‘Emerging technologies for learning- volume 3’ has just been published. This follow-up edition complements the first two ‘Emerging technologies for learning’ publications from 2006 and 2007.

The 'Emerging technologies for learning' series aims to help readers consider how emerging technologies may impact on education and learners in the medium term. The publications are not intended to be a comprehensive review of educational technologies, but offer some highlights across the broad spectrum of developments and trends. It should open readers up to some of the possibilities that are developing and the potential for technology to transform our ways of working, learning and interacting over the next three to five years.

Copies can be downloaded from

This latest publication includes the following articles:
•   Growing up with Google - what it means to education (Diane Oblinger, EDUCAUSE)
•   Mobile, wireless, connected - information clouds and learning (Mark van’t Hooft, Kent  State University)
•   Location-based and context-aware education - prospects and perils (Adam Greenfield, NYU)
•   Emerging trends in serious games and virtual words (Sara de Freitas, SGI)
•   ‘If it quacks like a duck…’ - developments in search technologies (Emma Tonkin, UKOLN)
•   Interactive displays and next generation interfaces (Michael Haller, Upper Austria University of Applied Sciences)

Well Andy,
I was going to post something but you beat me to it  Grin Volume 3 is a nice addition to Becta's yearly series, I'm very happy with the way my piece turned out and proud to be part of a very reputable group of authors (I didn't know who the other authors were until the volume was published last week).

Anyway, as Andy said, well worth a read.
