Delivered by Distinguished Speaker Neeru Khosla, Co-Founder & Executive Director of CK-12 Foundation. Sticking out like a sore thumb in a sea of ed tech zombie ideas is the rapid growth of OER as the future of education. It is extraordinary to see the adoption of high quality, curated STEM content for K-12 from students, teachers — both in small private schools to public schools, parents — all actively participating in customizing and delivering OER content to improve learning outcomes. Imagine how marrying high value curated content + interactive tools can empower learners and teachers globally. In this talk, we will discuss how to discover and personalize this plethora of digital content to create FREE textbooks and also the future of concept-based (bite-sized) learning leveraging multiple modalities (text, videos, exercises,interactive learning objects) that will help students and educators transform learning experiences.
