CoSN and New Media Consortium Release 2014 Report on Trends and Emerging Technologies in Education

The Consortium for School Networking (CoSN) and the New Media Consortium (NMC) released this year's K-12 edition of NMC's Horizon Report that looks at emerging technologies and trends in education. The report identifies six education trends to look out for that range from a shift to deeper learning in the classroom (near future) to increased use of open educational resources (mid-range trend) to fundamentally rethinking how school works (long-range trend). Cloud computing and wearable technology are both mentioned as emerging technologies that will impact education, while safety of student data is highlighted as one of the major challenges in this space.
