This special issue of On the Horizon examines key, emerging technologies with disruptive implications for the future of education. Such disruptions include the metaverse, blockchain technologies, peer-to-peer technologies, artificial intelligence, and school automation. This issue aims to build awareness of disruptive technologies, their broader impacts for education, and implications for policymakers positioned to take anticipatory action.

While a large base of academic literature exists on disruptive technologies, remarkably little research is done to connect these technologies with education and implications for learning. This issue aims to expose implications for education and learning and recommend policies to help ensure positive education futures.
