The 2014 Horizon Report for Schools


Each year the NMC Horizon Project identifies and describes emerging technologies likely to have a large impact over the coming five years in every sector of education, in 65 countries around the globe. The NMC Horizon Report: 2014 K–12 Edition identifies and describes six emerging technologies or applications expected to impact on school education. The report also notes critical trends and challenges that will affect teaching and learning over the same time frame. The changing roles of teachers, the shift to deeper learning approaches, an increasing focus on open educational resources, and the growing use of hybrid learning design are some of the issues explored. The current article provides edited extracts from this report.
