Recognized worldwide for our research on emerging technology, the NMC’s research reports and other publications are used in nearly r00 countries. Over the years, the NMC has produced a steady stream of targeted research into a wide range of emerging ideas and technologies, including digital literacy, course apps, personalized learning, innovation in language education, Challenge Based Learning, and more. The NMC Horizon Project, the NMC’s flagship research effort, has produced the NMC Horizon Report series for a 15 years, with a readership of several million.

NMC members participate in these efforts in a number of ways, and the Horizon Project provides several key examples. NMC experts serve on NMC Horizon Project expert panels to help chart the five-year horizon for trends, challenges, and developments in technology. Expert panelists lead discussions and follow up on efforts at their institutions with policymakers and other groups as consultants. The NMC Campus Leaders Advisory Board (C-LAB) organizes discussions that move the research into planning and practice on campuses and in schools, libraries, and museums. Faculty, educators, administrators, policymakers, and others worldwide read the report to discover new developments that are very likely to impact the practice of teaching, learning, and creative inquiry.
