A Horizon Report History

A Hack Education Project

EDUCAUSE is out today with the latest Horizon Report for Higher Education. This is, of course, a report that almost wasn’t as NMC, the original publisher of this project, abruptly closed its doors late last year. I had hoped that the whole thing would go away, but nothing ever dies...

Bryan Alexander has asked if I have any thoughts about his new project-in-the-making, FOECast, which is meant to serve as an exploration of the “future of education.” The project will serve, to a certain extent, as a replacement for the Horizon Report, whose own future is rather uncertain, intertwined as...

I’ve made some changes to this site, most obviously updating the header image. Thanks to Bryan Mathers. (Why a pigeon?) Those who look closely will also note that I have also changed the copyright information. No longer is there a Creative Commons license on Hack Education material. This really doesn’t...

On Monday evening, my phone started buzzing with texts and direct messages asking me if I’d seen the news about the New Media Consortium. It had sent out an email to its members announcing that it was suddenly and immediately shutting its doors. The details of “why” are still sketchy....

The latest Horizon Report is out – this one focused on K–12 and co-authored by the New Media Consortium (NMC) and the Consortium for School Networking (CoSN).

I am in the process of making good on my promise to actually liberate the data from the Horizon Report projects. I'm still learning how to code some of the pieces, but in the next week or so, there should be fully functioning JSON, YAML, and APIs with the data...

I have added a script to my websites today that will block annotations – namely those from Genius and those from Hypothes.is. I have been meaning to do this for a while now, so it’s mostly a project that comes as I procrastinate doing something else rather than one that...

This post also appeared on Hack Education The New Media Consortium and the EDUCAUSE Learning Initiative have released the latest NMC Horizon Report for Higher Education. I have written quite a bit about the problems (as I see them) with the Horizon Report, most recently in a talk I gave...

NMC and CoSN have released the latest Horizon Report for K–12. (And I have updated the GitHub repository that powers this site with this new data.) For those keeping track at home, here are the things the two organizations see “on the horizon”, along with the descriptions the report provides...

NMC and Educause released the latest Horizon Report last week, which was a nice prompt for me to revisit this project (mostly untouched since this time last year). For those keeping track at home, here are the things the two organizations see “on the horizon”: One Year or Less Bring...
