"04/20/2009 The Global Information Technology Report 2008-2009
Denmark and Sweden once again lead the rankings of The Global Information Technology Report 2008-2009, released for the eighth consecutive year by the World Economic Forum.

The United States rises one position from last year to third, confirming the country’s pre-eminence in networked readiness in the current economic crisis. Singapore (4), Switzerland (5), and the other Nordic countries: Finland (6), Iceland (7) and Norway (8), together with the Netherlands (9) and Canada (10) complete the top 10.

The Technology Report underlines that good education fundamentals and high levels of technological readiness and innovation are essential engines of growth needed to overcome the current economic crisis. Under the theme “Mobility in a Networked World”, this year’s Report places a particular focus on the relationship and interrelations between mobility and ICT.

With record coverage of 134 economies worldwide, the Report remains the world’s most comprehensive and authoritative international assessment of the impact of ICT on the development process and the competitiveness of nations.

Outra novidade:"Handbook of Emerging Technologies for Learning

The Handbook of Emerging Technologies for Learning (HETL) by George Siemens and Peter Tittenberger from the University of Manitoba has been designed as a resource tool for educators planning to incorporate technologies into their teaching and learning activities.

HETL has been developed for a workshop delivered to Athabasca University faculty and reflects several years work at the Learning Technologies Centre at the University of Manitoba.

Distance and online universities such as Athabasca, are well positioned to play a bridging role between tradition and emergence in transforming higher education.
