Trends

  • The technologies we use are increasingly cloud-based and expectations of IT decentralized support.

  • The world of work is increasingly collaborative, driving changes in the structure of student projects.


Challenges

  • Economic pressures and new models of education competing with the traditional models of education.

  • Digital media literacy continues its rise in importance.

  • Institutional barriers present major challenges to moving forward with emerging technologies.


Challenges

  • The prevailing methods of instruction impede the most effective application of technology
