Connecting dots for digital learning and teaching

K12 Ed-Tech Trend Forecast from Horizon Reports


New educational technologies are emerging mostly as ed-tech advocacies have been leading. In the fourth annual K-12 edition of the Horizon Report series, mobile apps and tablet computing are said to be arriving within a year, and game-based learning and personal or adaptive learning environments were identified trends set to explode during the next 2-3 years. The bring-your-own-device technology model is also gaining steam in K-12 schools, as is the expectation of students and educators “to be able to work, learn, and study whenever and wherever they want,” it adds.

The annual K12-focused report summarizes the qualitative research that was conducted on this wiki (licensed under CC-BY). The K12 Project as a whole is led by the The New Media Consortium, in collaboration with the Consortium for School Networking (CoSN) and the International Society for Technology in Education (ISTE).  2012 K-12 Edition of the NMC Horizon Project Preview is available now in the wiki.

We think reflections, discussions or even debating about the role of these technologies for better teaching and learning will be the most meaningful outcomes after the annual reports from NMC.
