The flagship NMC Horizon Report, focused on higher education, is translated into multiple languages every year. Over all editions, the readership of the reports is estimated at over two million worldwide, with readers in over 150 countries. The NMC Horizon Report: 2013 K12 Edition focuses on pre-tertiary education. It identifies and describes six emerging technologies or applications with considerable potential to impact on school education over the next one to five years. The report also notes critical trends and challenges that will affect teaching and learning over the same time frame. The current article consists of edited extracts from this report.
