Driving K-12 Innovation

Through the new Driving K-12 Innovation series, CoSN continues its commitment to sharing high-quality trend reports that support the use of emerging technology in K-12 education to transform learning. In this initiative, a global advisory board of K-12 leaders, practitioners, and changemakers engages in a several month discourse about the major themes driving, hindering, and enabling teaching and learning innovation at schools. Their work is divided into three phases: Hurdles, Accelerators, and Tech Enablers. After each phase, a survey is deployed to capture the final thoughts from advisory board members and discern the top five topics to feature in each publication. The free publications are released throughout the year to simulate ongoing discussions and are summarized below. CoSN members are privy to the survey results, with an opportunity to submit exemplars for inclusion on this website.


CoSN is grateful to the following sponsors for their support: Amazon Web Services, ClassLink, Dell EMC, ENA, Google for Education, and Kajeet

Hurdles. Obstacles that make participants slow down, evaluate, practice and then make the leap to better support teaching and learning
Accelerators. Megatrends that drive change – sometimes suddenly over time so gradually the implications aren’t readily apparent.
Tech Enablers. Tools that support smoother leaps over the hurdles and expansive changes in global
K-12 education.
Toolkit. A series toolkit will help school leaders and practitioners initiate and facilitate crucial conversations that help them put the ideas from the series into action. (*Coming in 2019)
