Are Interoperability Standards Disrupting K-12 Education?

Student-centered learning is achievable when technology works together to ease the way. Students can own their own learning if they aren’t struggling to access digital learning resources. So, what are K-12 districts doing to support personalization at scale? And what role do open standards play in successfully transitioning to a fully integrated digital learning environment? No one has all the answers, but this panel will explore the possibilities of adopting open interoperability standards and its potential to shape next generation digital learning environments.
