Weak digital literacy skills among students and faculty are hampering the effective use of technology in schools. But according to a panel of experts, this problem, as prevalent and pernicious as it may be, is within our power to solve. Some of the other obstacles identified by the panel … not so much.
The panel of experts, led by the New Media Consortium and the Educause Learning Initiative, identified six impediments that are hampering education and the adoption of technology in education in significant ways. The findings were published in a report released in February, the NMC Horizon Report: 2016 Higher Education Edition.
The issues were categorized in one of three groupings: barriers that are troublesome but to some degree solvable; obstacles that are more difficult and will require substantial effort to resolve; and impediments that are so difficult that they may not be within our power to solve ever. Each of the six identified trends has implications for policy, leadership and practice.
