Tagging Process, Practices, and Promises: Focus on Standards

  1. 1. www.lrmi.netPrepared by Knovation, Inc.06-05-2013TAGGING PROCESS,PRACTICES & PROMISES:FOCUS ON STANDARDSSteve Nordmark, Chief Academic Officer, Knovation, Inc.06-05-2013
  2. 2. www.lrmi.netPrepared by Knovation, Inc. - 06-05-2013Knovation’s Content Curating for LRMI• Coordinating with LRMI technical working group onthe evolution of the LRMI spec (metadata elements)• Serving Proof of Concept (PoC) phase of LRMIinitiative – performing content curating services (aka“tagging”)• Supported Accessibility in Metadata TechnicalWorking Group on the formation of their spec andproposal to schema.org

  5. 5. www.lrmi.netPrepared by Knovation, Inc. - 06-05-2013“Promises” for Publishers & Providers• Unified standard helps streamline initial taggingprocess• LRMI represents a strong, focused base of commoneducational metadata elements, including tagging forstandards• If publishers unify around the usage of LRMI, it raisesthe “table stakes” for content discovery applications
  6. 6. www.lrmi.netPrepared by Knovation, Inc. - 06-05-2013“Promises” for Publishers & Providers• Moves the bar up higher towardpersonalization promise• Stimulates innovation around qualityof use & effectiveness of resources1 2 3 4 5Feedback from Review to Synthesis & Elaboration:Publishers have greater insight into Learning Resourceeffectiveness
  7. 7. www.lrmi.netPrepared by Knovation, Inc. - 06-05-2013Natural Context for LRMI TaggingGranularity of tagging[component level e.g., lesson/activity]EARCHSClassroom context[teacher and student search]Search & discovery
  8. 8. www.lrmi.netPrepared by Knovation, Inc. - 06-05-2013Targeted Alignment vs. Maximum CoverageTraditional Standards Alignment – marketingemphasis promoting maximum coveragedoesn’t target web discoverability use caseRecommended Standards Alignment – Focus onclassroom teacher use caseNote: Avoid false positives = “Pinpoint” alignments to standards – vs. –emphasizing maximum standards coverage
  9. 9. www.lrmi.netPrepared by Knovation, Inc. - 06-05-2013Leveraging LRMI for Targeted AlignmentsalignmentObject consists of:• alignmentType• targetDescription• targetName• targetURLassessesteachesrequirestextComplexityreadingLeveleducationalSubjecteducationLevelThe description of a node in an establishededucational framework(i.e. CCSS Text Description: “Describe theconnection between two individuals, events,ideas, or pieces of information in a text.”)The name of a node in anestablished educationalframework(i.e. CCSS Dot Notation:CCSS.ELA-Literacy.RI.1.3)
