NMC Horizon Report > 2013 K-12 Edition Wiki

The generous support of HP's Office of Sustainability and Social Innovationmakes this research possible and is thankfully acknowledged.Welcome to the workspace for the 2013 Horizon.K12 Project. This space was the place for the members of the Horizon.K12 Advisory Board to manage the process of researching, discussing, and ultimately, selecting the topics for the NMC Horizon Report > 2013 K-12 Edition. The annual K12-focused report, which summarizes the qualitative research was conducted on this wiki, and the K12 Project as a whole was 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).

The report was published in June 2013, and focused on emerging technology and its applications to K-12 education. 2013 was its fifth year of publication. (See the Horizon Report: 2012 K-12 Edition, ).

Horizon.K12 is a project that applied 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 were encouraged to follow the advisory board's progress as the discussion unfolded 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's Office of Sustainability and Social Innovation.
