About the NMC Horizon Project

Horizon Reports

As the centerpiece of NMC's Horizon Project, the NMC Horizon Report series charts the landscape of emerging technologies for teaching, learning and creative inquiry around the globe. Since the launch of the Horizon Project in March 2002, the NMC has held an ongoing series of conversations and dialogs with hundreds of technology professionals, teachers, technologists, leaders from K-12 education, and representatives of leading corporations.

Each year, a Panel of Experts considers the results of these dialogs and also looks at a wide range of articles, published and unpublished research, papers, and websites to generate a list of technologies, trends, challenges, and issues that knowledgeable people in technology industries, higher education, schools, libraries, and museums are thinking about.

This wiki is for a special project being conducted in partnership with Internet2 to identify pressing opportunities where high-performance Internet can enhance teaching and learning in schools across the United States.

Members of the education community are encouraged to follow the Panel of Expert's progress as the discussion unfolds and to use the wiki as a resource and reference tool. Any interested party is encouraged to participate in the Horizon Project by using the project's hashtag on Twitter: #NMChz.
