Open Up: Districts' Push for Open Data Standards

School and district leaders have made it clear: It’s time for ed tech providers to open up. Even the federal government, through its “Go Open” initiative, is getting into the act. Open data standards and interoperability appear to be the path forward. But what does this mean for both sides of the equation: tech providers and end users?

This panel of district and corporate CTOs will explore implications of the “Go Open” movement, forecasting challenges and prescribing best practices. Attendees can expect a lively discussion about open data standards and how district leaders are working with ed tech companies using an “all boats shall rise” philosophy.
