The NMC Horizon Report 2014 K-12 Edition is a collaborative research effort between the NMC, the Consortium of School Networking (CoSN), and the International Society for Technology in Education (ISTE). This 2014 edition of the NMC Horizon Report series discusses the top emerging technologies, trends, and challenges that the groups believe will have a major impact on teaching, learning, and creative inquiry in pre-college education over the next five years. The NMC Horizon Report 2014 K-12 Edition identifies Cloud Computing and BYOD as technologies expected to enter mainstream use in the first horizon of one year or less. Learning Analytics and Games and Gamification are seen in the second horizon of two to three years and The Internet of Things and Wearable Technologies emerged in the third horizon of four to five years. The research and analysis contained in the report will help inform K-12 educators' technology strategies over the next five years. It is important for you to understand these technologies as you move into the field of education.
Your group will create and collaborate on a Google Site to add content to a web page to help us better understand the trend your group is assigned. Add text, pictures, links and videos that you can use when you explain the trend or challenge. Be sure to explain the trend/challenge, provide examples and discuss its impact on education. How might this trend/challenge enhance learning?
