About the Horizon Report: K-12 Edition


Horizon Reports


Horizon.K12 started as a project in 2009, launched under the banner of the New Media Consortium's Horizon Project to apply the process developed for the New Media Consortium's Horizon Report with a focus on emerging technologies for K-12 learning institutions. The Horizon Report: 2009 K-12 Edition was released in March of 2009 and was downloaded more than 20,000 times in its first nine months from the NMC website alone. The second editon, The //Horizon Report: 2010 K-12 Edition// has been even more popular.

This project continues for the third year in 2011, again with support from Hewlett Packard's Office of Global Social Innovation. The 2011 Horizon.K12 Advisory Board was convened in February 2011 and will be conducting its research and discussion in this wikispace. The Horizon Report: 2011 K-12 Edition will be released in April, 2011.

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. It is the record of the processes used, materials referenced, research methods, and decisions that were part of creating the 2011 Horizon.K12 Report. It is meant to provide a deep resource of materials that will underpin the Report.

Any interested party is encouraged to participate in the Horizon.K12 Project, as users of and contributors to the wiki, or by tagging resources in delicious.com, using the Project's tag hz11k12.
