When One Equals Zero: The 1EdTech Solution for Integration

April 2 (Tuesday) — 8:00-9:00 AM

In fall 2018, several leading school districts piloted the new One EdTech Ecosystem (1EdTech) program led by IMS Global Learning Consortium to enable easier adoption of and seamless access to digital learning applications with zero time and cost integration. The immediate goal of the 1EdTech initiative is to break down the barriers to fully integrating learning products so that institutions can be digital on day one of learning. It includes a scalable central registry, built-in security management, and a set of advanced testing services that ensures products can connect and work properly using open standards. 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 district leaders who participated in its launch.
