A look into what may be coming to the K-12 classroom in the next few years. Some of these technologies are already in use in many places.

Change or die?

Erin Ryan's curator insight, October 22, 2015 6:14 PM

The students of tomorrow will demand the curriculum of tomorrow. This statement engulfs the idea that education has to change with the times. What used to work, no longer does. We have to make some aggressive changes to education in order to support students in developing the skills that employers expect. I am privileged to work for  district that has many of these new technologies in place. There is a definite awareness in education that our instruction and pedagogies need to be adjusted or revamped to fit our learners needs. The constant news flashes are not new and we are on it folks!

The NMC Horizon Report > 2012 K-12 Edition identifies mobile devices & apps and tablet computing as technologies expected to enter mainstream use in the first horizon of one year or less. Game-based learning and personal learning environments are seen in the second horizon of two to three years; and augmented reality and natural user interfaces 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.
