About the NMC Horizon Report > 2015 K-12 Edition

Horizon Reports

As the centerpiece of NMC's Horizon Project, the NMC Horizon Report series charts the landscape of emerging technologies for teaching, learning and creative inquiry around the globe. Since the launch of the Horizon Project in March 2002, the NMC has held an ongoing series of conversations and dialogs with hundreds of technology professionals, teachers, technologists, leaders from K-12 education, and representatives of leading corporations.

Each year, a Panel of Experts considers the results of these dialogs and also looks at a wide range of articles, published and unpublished research, papers, and websites to generate a list of technologies, trends, challenges, and issues that knowledgeable people in technology industries, higher education, and schools are thinking about.

This project continued again in 2015 with cooperation from CoSN. The 2015 Horizon Project K-12 Expert Panel was convened in January 15 and conducted its research and discussion in this wikispace. The NMC Horizon Report > 2015 K-12 Edition was released in June, 2015.

Members of the education community are encouraged to review the Panel of Expert's progress as the discussion unfolded and to use the wiki as a resource and reference tool. It is the record of the processes used, materials referenced, research methods, and decisions that are part of creating the NMC Horizon Report > 2015 K-12 Edition. It is meant to provide a deep resource of materials that underpin the report.

Any interested party is encouraged to participate in the Horizon Project, as users of and contributors to the wiki, or by using the project's hashtag on Twitter: #NMChz.
