The megatrends in today's technology landscape both enables and impacts education in all facets. IT for both academic and administrative computing must deal with the trends of consumerization, ubiquitous networking, social networking, mobility, virtualization, cloud computing, visual technologies, and immersive data. The classroom is impacted by how students learn and how business is conducted; IT must embrace that technology has fundamentally changed how consumers perform their day-to-day tasks. Education is critical to the success of these megatrends in determining how to incorporate these concepts and principles into IT deliverables. Institutions will be defined by how they embrace and support consumerization.
