Teacher and children's engagement using a tablet

Emerging tools in educational technology impact the ways students learn and teachers teach. CoSN provides resources to assist key stakeholders with insight on how emerging technologies can transform the learning environment and guidelines for how to discuss that transformation.

2016 Horizon Report and Digital Toolkit

In partnership with the New Media Consortium (NMC), CoSN produces the annual Horizon Report, which examines emerging technologies for their potential impacts on and uses in teaching, learning, and creative inquiry within K-12 education. The NMC Horizon Report 2016 K-12 Edition analyzes both personal (teachers' roles) and universal (school organization) trends for their potential impacts on education within a five-year timeframe. The report is divided into sections analyzing key trends, significant challenges, and important developments in educational technology. Download the free report and toolkit for a full analysis.
