The changing landscape of educational technology in K-12 impacts the ways students learn and teachers teach with cutting-edge, emerging tools. CoSN provides resources to assist school technology leaders, policymakers, and other key educational stakeholders with insight and guidelines to facilitate a conversation on how emerging technologies can transform the learning environment.
2013 Horizon Report and Toolkit
Now in its fourth edition, the CoSN’s “Horizon Report: 2013 K-12 Edition Toolkit,” which accompanies the New Media Consortium’s (NMC) “NMC Horizon Report > 2013 K-12 Edition,” provides district technology leaders, policymakers and other key education stakeholders with insight and guidelines to facilitate a conversation on leveraging emerging technologies to advance teaching and learning.
CoSN, in partnership with The New Media Consortium (NMC) and the International Society for Technology in Education (ISTE), with the support of HP, produced the NMC Horizon Report > 2013 K-12 Edition. This fifth edition in the annual K-12 series of the NMC Horizon Project examines emerging technologies for their potential impact on and use in teaching, learning, and creative inquiry within the environment of pre-college education.
Six emerging technologies are identified across three adoption horizons over the next one to five years as well as key trends and challenges expected to continue over the same period. The resource provides educators, school administrators, and practitioners a valuable guide for strategic technology planning.
The NMC Horizon Report > 2013 K-12 Edition recognizes cloud computing and mobile learning as technologies expected to enter mainstream use in the first horizon of one year or less, learning analytics and open content are seen in the second horizon of two to three years, and 3D printing and virtual and remote laboratories emerge in the third horizon of four to five years.
