Horizon Report: K12 Edition Wiki

Horizon Reports

This is an archived workspace used to produce the 2010 Horizon Report: K-12 Edition . You can find the current project wiki at http://k12.wiki.nmc.org

Welcome to the workspace for the 2010 Horizon.K12 Project. This space is a place for the members of the Horizon.K12 Advisory Board to manage the process of researching, discussing, and ultimately, selecting the topics for the 2010 Horizon Report: K-12 Edition. The annual K12-focused report, which summarizes the qualitative research that will be conducted on this wiki, and the K12 Project as a whole are a collaboration between The New Media Consortium and the Consortium for School Networking (CoSN). The generous support of the Office of Global Social Innovation at Hewlett Packard makes this research possible and is thankfully acknowledged.

The report, to be published in mid-April 2010, will focus on emerging technology and its applications to K-12 education. This is its second year of publication. (See the Horizon Report: 2009 K-12 Edition, shown in this link in its Comment-Press-powered discussion format. The official electronic release appears in the right column).

Horizon.K12 is a project that applies the process developed for the New Media Consortium's Horizon Project to the identification of trends and challenges relevant to elementary and secondary learning institutions, and to clarifying key emerging technologies that are sure to impact the sector. Members of the K-12 education community are encouraged to follow the Advisory Board's progress as the discussion unfolds and to use the wiki as a resource and reference tool.

The research effort behind Horizon.K12 is made possible through the generous support of Hewlett Packard and the Office of Global Social Innovation.
