eXtension has been working with the New Media Consortium and the ECOP Innovation Task Force to create a Horizon Report for Cooperative Extension 2016-2021
. The report looks at technologies, challenges, and opportunities that sit
on the horizon --- from present day to about 3-5 years out. In this web meeting Jerry Thomas, Director, eXtension I-Three Labs, will provide an overview of the report, and begin a discussion around the innovations in the report and how Cooperative Extension can embrace them. Come with your questions and ideas for the conversation.
The report, the NMC Technology Outlook for Cooperative Extension 2016-2021, was jointly released by t
he New Media Consortium (NMC), the eXtension Foundation
, and the ECOP Innovation Task Force
in conjunction with this eXtension Foundation webinar series. In addition, Jamie Seger, a leader of the EdTech Learning Network and member of the ECOP Innovation Task Force, developed a two-page summary
of the report.
Additional webinars featuring Extension Professionals working with some of the horizon technologies included in the report will be held this fall. Prepare to be excited and inspired by the ways technology can open new worlds in Extension programming!
