Horizon Reports

Welcome to the workspace for the 2012 Horizon.K12 Project. This space was used by the members of the Horizon.K12 Advisory Board to manage the process of researching, discussing, and ultimately, selecting the topics for the 2012 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 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).

The report was published in June 2012, and focused on emerging technology and its applications to K-12 education. This is its fourth year of publication.

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 was made possible through the generous support of Hewlett Packard's Office of Global Social Innovation.
