CoSN 2024 Driving K-12 Innovation Report

CoSN recently released the 2024 Driving K-12 Innovation Report. The Driving K-12 Innovation Series is the process by which CoSN shares high-quality global trend reports regarding the use of emerging technologies to transform K-12 teaching and learning.

CoSN’s annual Driving K-12 Innovation Report is produced through the collaborative work of a global advisory board of K-12 leaders, practitioners, and change-makers. Together, over six months, the global advisory board members engage in synchronous and asynchronous discussions, surveys, and more around the use of emerging technology to transform learning in K-12 education. The result of the advisory board’s work is the annual CoSN Driving K-12 Innovation Report, which is divided into three main categories: Hurdles (challenges), Accelerators (mega-trends), and Tech Enablers (tools). To learn which specific items fell into each of the three main categories this year as well as access the link to download the complete 2024 report, please go to

Roadmap to Innovation Newsletter

In addition to the annual report, CoSN also produces a monthly Driving K-12 Innovation newsletter titled “Roadmap to Innovation.” Subscribers to the free monthly newsletter are informed about tools needed to accelerate change in their districts, at their organizations, and in the K-12 ecosystem around the globe. You can learn more and subscribe to the monthly newsletter at
