Peek Inside: NMC Horizon EdTech Weekly App

Last week, the NMC released the NMC Horizon EdTech Weekly App — an extension of the NMC Horizon Project. This app helps to inform the daily decisions of educators by providing them with instant edtech news and field examples of emerging technology effectively integrated into teaching, learning, and creative inquiry. The app allows the ongoing research of the NMC Horizon Project to be readily accessed from your iPad or iPhone. Purchase of the app directly funds the critical work of the NMC Horizon Project to collect and disseminate edtech research, projects, articles, reports, and more.

The NMC Horizon EdTech Weekly app funnels content from the NMC Horizon Project Navigator database. For those of you who are not familiar, Navigator is a searchable database where we organize projects, articles, reports, and more that pertain to edtech topics. For each NMC Horizon Report, we pull projects and further readings from this extensive database. The NMC Horizon EdTech Weekly App offers users direct access to search, save, and discover those projects, news items, resources, and publications from our constantly updated NMC Horizon Project Navigator database.

Let's take a quick tour of the app features!
