Horizon Report: http://apo.org.au/files/Resource/2014-nmc-horizon-report-k12-en_0.pdf
The Horizon Report is a global research consortium that identifies and describes key trends, significant challenges, and emerging technologies likely to have a large impact over the coming five years in education around the globe. This report is a key document for the technology and learning roadmap of all education jurisdictions worldwide.
The most recent 2014 report identifies both BYOD and Cloud Computing (Google Apps in our case) as being within 12 months of adoption in K-12 education across the globe. See particularly, pp34-38
