Welcome to the NITLE Technology Futures Market (TFM). Here we use a market system to learn about emergent technologies and practices for higher education.

How the TFM works: stocks are propositions, hypotheses about unfolding events. We assign values to them by buying and selling shares over time, playing the market based on what we learn about the world and our reflections. No real money is involved – only the currency of collaborative intelligence. Futures markets have been used for years to leverage distributed knowledge towards better anticipating emergent events.
