    "The annual Horizon report, released June 29 by the nonprofit New Media Consortium, examines the trends and technologies that will shape primary and secondary education over the next five years.

The "wicked" problems were far more dramatic: shifting toward deeper learning approaches and rethinking the role of school itself."
