Horizon Report: 2017 K–12 Education Edition

The NMC/CoSN Horizon Report: 2017 K–12 Edition examines emerging technologies for their potential impact on and use in teaching, learning, and creative inquiry in schools.

As schools continue to foster 21st century skills in students in order to prepare them for the demands of a global workforce, K–12 will see the adoption of more makerspaces and research efforts to surface best benefits and practices. Furthermore, the report noted that “makerspaces were initially lauded for their role in stimulating interest in STEM fields,” but now they are often viewed as conduits to STEAM education with more emphasis on the humanities, visual arts, dance, drama and other areas of the arts.
