Coding as a literacy and the rise of STEAM learning are two key trends driving K-12 technology adoption for the next 1-2 years, according to the latest New Media Consortium and CoSN Horizon Report.
The report is organized into 6 key trends, 6 significant challenges, and 6 developments in edtech that are going to impact K-12 teaching, learning and creative inquiry.
Overall, the report series tracks the five-year impact that innovative practices and new technologies have on K-12 education.
In addition to coding and STEAM, the four other trends set to impact K-12 teaching and learning include a growing focus on measuring learning, redesigning learning spaces (both driving technology adoption for the next 3-5 years), along with advancing cultures of innovation and deeper learning approaching (driving technology adoption for 5 or more years).
