When One Equals Zero: The 1EdTech Solution for Integration

April 2 (Tuesday) — 8:00-9:00 AM

In 2018, several leading U.S. school district members of 1EdTech Consortium began leading a new collaboration designed to result in “digital on day one” access to all digital resources through zero-cost zero-time integration based on 1EdTech OneRoster. 1EdTech includes a scalable central registry, built-in security management, and a set of advanced testing services that ensure digital content providers and district platforms can connect easily and reliably—without the traditional special cases and secret sauce. If all goes well, 1EdTech will preview in fall 2019 with a small number of districts, featuring content from four of the largest K-12 edtech providers. The overarching goal of 1EdTech is to have one trusted and innovative digital ecosystem—based on the verifiable use of open standards—that maximizes the investment in and effectiveness of educational technology product integrations. Learn more about 1EdTech and hear from some of the district leaders that are making it happen!
