This first research review post for 2012 is a slight departure from the usual review of educational research. DERN has read many articles and blog posts about technology and education predicting ICT in education developments for the coming year and has dismissed most of them. Predictions of future trends in the use of ICT in education are notoriously inaccurate. A case in point is the October 2010 release of the iPad which changed the landscape and was not predicted. However, two reports stand-out because of the expertise, research and experience that have been harnessed in order to compile these in-depth reports. The first is a business report from Deloitte called Technology, Media & Telecommunications Predictions 2012 which is extensive, comprehensive and solidly backed by evidence to give a view of what is predicted for the coming year. Technology, Media & Telecommunications (TMT) Predictions is in its third year and can boast a good record of predictive accuracy.
