Six trends for the future: As we said in EdSurge edition 018, the NMC Horizon K-12 report, which tapped the collective brains of a gaggle of school-smart folks, points out six emerging technology trends for the K-12 space. (Spoiler alert! They are: cloud computing, mobile tech, game-based learning, open content, learning analytics, and personal learning environments.) Now CoSN (deep breath!: the Consortium for School Networking) has created a toolkit of slides & videos to help school leaders think through what the trends mean for schools. Smart geeks won't find the technology surprising--but watch the videos as a reality check on how school leaders frame these issues.
