    I read about this in the last Horizon Report, but I think now the same thing I thought then - is anyone talking about this in K12? The horizon for this is probably beyond the far term. Kinda like the Corning tables.

    Maybe better placed in the challenges section under a general heading of digital citizenship, which could include AUP's.

    This is very exciting stuff, but is it within the far term horizon? People I have asked say mainstream adoption (if it ever gets there for k12) is at least 10 years away.

    Would love to see some disruption in the standardized testing field. Hewlett foundation is trying to inspire innovation in Automated Writing Evaluation (AWE) to increase the assessment of writing. That is exciting. I fear that stdized bubble tests are in our near, middle, and far term future, though; and it has nothing to do with technology.

    Disruptive for sure. I met the team from Hapara tonight, a New Zealand-based company that has built an application that rests on top of Google Apps to give educators a much more highly organized and extensible reach with their students. They are only charging $4 per student per year. Add this to the dozens of excellent curated free content resources and you have an online course delivery system that outdoes any of the current available options on the market for one tenth of the price.

    Pennsylvania and Ohio are examples of how a state can blow 10% of their budget on an unproven practice and get nothing back for it. California may be trying a different approach, and putting the contract outsourcing in the hands of the districts themselves.
