CoSN Driving K-12 Innovation Report
CoSN recently released the 2023 Driving K-12 Innovation Report. The Driving K-12 Innovation Series is the process by which CoSN shares high quality trend reports regarding the use of emerging technologies to transform K-12 teaching and learning.
Through the Driving K-12 Initiative, a global advisory board of K-12 leaders, practitioners, and change-makers engage in discourse about the major themes driving, hindering, and enabling teaching and learning innovation in K-12 schools. The results of the advisory board’s work is divided into three main categories: Hurdles, Accelerators, and Enablers. To learn which specific items fell into each of the three main categories as well as how to access the full report please go to https://www.cosn.org/edtech-topics/driving-k-12-innovation/. Plus, if you would like to be considered to be a part of the 2024 Driving K-12 Innovation Advisory Board, you will find a link to submit your notice of interest on that same webpage.
