The purpose of this study was to investigate teachers’ beliefs regarding the integration of technologies for learning following exposure to the 2011 K-12 edition of the Horizon Report. Teachers read the Horizon Report and then participated in an asynchronous, threaded discussion focusing on technologies they would like to see integrated into their classrooms and technologies they do not see possible in the near term. Qualitative methods were used to analyze the discussion. Findings include the teachers’ desire to see mobile technologies integrated into their classrooms, and their belief that game-based learning will not be prevalent in their specific contexts.
