Dr. Larry Johnson speaking at the World Innovation Summit on Education, Nov. 18, 2009

Dr. Larry Johnson (born December 17, 1950 in Corpus Christi, Texas) is an American futurist, author, and educator. Since 2001, Dr. Johnson has served as Chief Executive Officer of the New Media Consortium an international consortium of hundreds of universities, colleges, museums, research centers, and technology companies.[1]

Contributions[edit]

The NMC’s annual Horizon Report is the most visible component of the Horizon Project, which Johnson founded and has led since its inception in 2002. The report has since become one of the leading tools used by senior executives in universities and museums to set priorities for technology planning in more than 75 countries.

Johnson has organized summits and large-scale projects around topics such as Visual literacy,[2] learning objects,[3] educational gaming,[4] the future of scholarship,[5] and the 3D web.[6] In April 2008, Johnson presented testimony to the House Subcommittee on Telecommunications and the Internet on the nature and state of virtual worlds.[7][8]

In 2009, Johnson helped the NMC and the Edward and Betty Marcus Foundation formalize their longstanding collaboration in support of the visual arts in Texas with the launch of the Edward and Betty Marcus Institute for Digital Education in the Arts (MIDEA), and served as its founding director. An outgrowth of the earlier Digital Education Project for Texas Art Museums, MIDEA built on that four-year systemic effort to increase the capacity of museums across Texas and beyond to use new media to tell compelling stories about art and their collections. The project provides a hub for Texas museum professionals to learn about and discuss all forms of digital media, as well as ongoing training and support for digital arts education. (The project continues its unique work with Texas art museums that has become known as the Texas Testbed.) The learnings from this project inform the national and international efforts of many museums and museum-based organizations all over the world.

An author of several books, numerous chapters, dozens of articles, and principal investigator for several important national and international studies, he has been recognized for his research by the American Association of Community Colleges[9] and the American Association of University Administrators.[10]

Background[edit]

In 2006, Johnson marked 25 years of service in higher education, most recently as CEO of the New Media Consortium, and previously as president and CEO of Fox Valley Technical College, a community college serving more than 20,000 FTE in Appleton, Wisconsin. His experiential base includes service at both very large and very small institutions and positions at every level and across all the major areas of college and university work.

Between 1993 and 1996, he served as vice president for the League for Innovation in the Community College,[11] working at the national level to take the story of community colleges to governmental, foundation, and corporate leaders across the country. As director of the League's Information Technology Initiative, he coordinated what was at the time the world’s largest higher education technology conference, the international Conference of Information Technology.[12]

He serves on a number of boards, including the Adobe Systems Higher Education Advisory Board, the Advanced Defense Learning Initiative National Advisory Board,[13] the virtual International Spaceflight Museum,[14] and the Academic Commons Board of Directors.[15]
