And now a few words from another one of our sponsors, Richard Culatta from the Department
of Education. Richard.
Thanks everybody. I’m really very excited to be here and there are so many great things
that are happening. How do you top that, right? There are so many wonderful projects that
are going on and it's a lot of fun to see what happens when we have so many smart people
working on the same problems. It's also neat to see how exciting and fun data is. If people
when I was in high school knew how fun data was I would have been a lot more popular back
then. But we won't talk about that much now. Up until this point one of the things that
we have been talking about specifically is data about people, about learners, about students
- very, very important data. But I want to talk about another type of data that's also
important. And that is data about content - digital content. As we transfer from print
to digital we have all kinds of wonderful opportunities opening up in education; simulations,
new documents, and images, and source documents - many of which are available for free because
they're available under open licenses. But there is a challenge here, and that is the
fact that these materials are scattered all over the place, all over the web. And it's
very hard to find them. It turns out that traditional search engines aren't set up very
well to find digital learning content - especially if you're trying to search for it by standards.
It just isn't how they're build - it's not what they're meant to do. So we end up putting
a huge burden on teachers (and parents and students) to try to find the right materials
by searching through all of these millions and millions of resources that are out there.
One of the approaches that we tried to make this better was saying, "what if we make portals?"
"what if we grouped these content areas into content repositories where teachers could
go and search and find it?" Well there are problems with that too, because even though
when you go to the portals you do a better job of searching, the search does not return
results from any of the other portals - and there are thousands of them. So teachers still
have to go from one to the next to the next and we place a huge burden on teachers again.
What if... What if we could flip that around and instead of putting the burden on teachers
to find content we made it so the content found the teachers that needed it? Teachers
would be much happier as well as parents and students who would be able to use their content
and find just their right match for what they need. Let me talk about a really exciting
initiative called the Learning Registry. Learning Registry is an open directory - a way where
sites and portals like this can publish the information about their content to a common
place. They don't move the content there, they just say "here's what we have" and if
there's information that they know about it like. "here are standards that it's aligned
to" it's also able to share in there and then once all of these different sites are created
to Learning Registry you could do a search in any one of those and return results from
across all of them. And let's say, for example, that Thinkfinity happens to know that the
video up there is aligned to a particular Common Core standard, and that same video
is down here in the NASA repository but they don't know about that content alignment that
was made in that one system, by connecting through the Learning Registry that information
can be shared. Very, very cool. It get's even better because the learning is an open platform.
People can build apps on top of it. So you could have an app, for example, that allows
teachers to rate the quality of content and that rating information could then go to all
of the places where that content is stored across multiple portals. You could have another
app that let's teachers make suggestions about what content area - what standards - a particular
resource is aligned to. And most importantly you could have an app that says "based on
what we know about you, we can tell what content will make the most sense for what you're trying
to teach." So if I'm a fifth grade teacher teaching science to predominately English
language learners, I can get recommendations by other 5th grade science teachers teaching
predominantly English language learners on what content worked for them - which is going
to be a very different recommendation that then science teacher across the hall teaching
6th grade predominately English language speakers. And so you see this is a very, very powerful
platform. What does this mean? It means that for states it becomes much easier to share
content alignment. Right now many states across the country - especially as we transition
to common core - are going through and trying to make these decisions. Trying to get recourses
aligned so that teachers have the materials that they need. Today, if they're not using
Learning Registry if a state makes 100 assertions (takes 100 pieces of content and says "there
are what they're aligned to"). If every state does that, every state has a total of 100
aligned resources to standards. If, on the other hand, they use Learning Registry, and
still make just those same 100 alignment assertions, each state will have 5000 aligned pieces of
content. Very, very efficient. Now for publishers, the Learning Registry allows you to share
once and everybody can have access to it. Instead of saying "we're going to make a connection
to share these videos with this school, and this place, and this site" they can say "we're
going to share once to the Learning Registry and anyone who wants access to the content
can pull it out of the Learning Registry." Developers can build awesome apps. All of
those apps that we just talked about - those are open to anybody who is creative enough
to come in and say "here is what we should be able to do with content." By the way, folks
like Dominion Enterprises that have been just doing a Learning Registry hack-a-thon building
all kinds of great new apps to sit on top of this platform. Teachers can access the
exact right resources that they need based on customized recommendations and researchers
can start to identify what content is most effective for teaching certian groups of people
particular content standards. Very, very proud of the folks that we already have publishing
metadata into the Learning Registry - these are just some of the great publishers that
we have partnering to publish content into learning registry. And, I'm particular excited
to say that we have announcements of additional Learning Registry content that will be in
the Learning Registry in the very near future. Curriculum Pathways is a great program that
many of you are familiar with that is going to be there soon. Thinkfinity and their partners
have committed to having their content available in the Learning Registry as well. So, a very,
very exiting time. UEN is a great story that you will hear about in just a minute so I
won't say any more about that. Let me end by saying that Learning Registry is an open
project, as I stared. Which means that it only works when people like you and people
that you know participate. So if you are a content publisher, help us by putting the
metadata about your content into the Learning Registry. if you're a developer, build really
awesome apps to help teachers and parents and students find the content that you need.
And help us share this idea so that we can really transform the way people access the
content that they need to be successful in learning. Thank you very much.
