Welcome to "A Day in the Life......"

a global collaborative project

Project Overview

"A Day in the Life......." is a collaborative project exploring what life is like today, and what students envision it to be like in the future based on emerging technologies and evolving education systems.
The project will use the soon to be released Horizon Report for K-12 education as a discussion tool. This report was informed by a global Board of educators who collectively decided which technologies would be impacting K-12 education in time frames from now up to 5 years.

Guiding Question: How are new and emerging technologies having an impact on our lives?

Time-to-Adoption Horizon: One Year or Less


Time-to-Adoption Horizon: Two to Three Years


Time-to-Adoption Horizon: Four to Five Years

Project Structure
Students will work in collaborative cross-school teams based on the Horizon Report topics to investigate and share images from their school and community (e.g. homes, libraries, work places etc) regarding everyday use of technology for leisure, study and work e.g.

  • their personal lives
  • their school/learning lives
  • their parents/guardians working lives
Students will put together a digital story, a collage, or some other team-determined product based on the theme "A Day in the Life....." with both current and futuristic stories explored.
