  • 1. The Learning Registry Project Many slides credit to: Daniel R Rehak, PhD ADL Technical Advisor Department of Defense Steve Midgley Deputy Directory, Office of Ed Tech US Dept of Education steve.midgley@ed.gov / @stevemidgley
  • 2. Why?
  • 3. Digital learning resources are widely available, but hard to apply for teaching and learning. © Copyright 2010 US Advanced Distributed Learning Initiative: CC-BY-3.0 20101022 Too Hard. +
  • 4. It takes too much work/time to find digital resources. © Copyright 2010 US Advanced Distributed Learning Initiative: CC-BY-3.0 20101022 Too Much Information. +
  • 5. Educators and students already know a lot about how best to use resources. © Copyright 2010 US Advanced Distributed Learning Initiative: CC-BY-3.0 20101022 Lost expertise. +
  • 6. Users are leaving “data trails” but that usage data is often thrown away or locked up. © Copyright 2010 US Advanced Distributed Learning Initiative: CC-BY-3.0 20101022 Lost information. +
  • 7. We can apply usage data about resources to enable new learning services. © Copyright 2010 US Advanced Distributed Learning Initiative: CC-BY-3.0 20101022 DIY TBD. +
  • 8. New services can include better discovery, recommendations, curricular integration and measurements of quality. © Copyright 2010 US Advanced Distributed Learning Initiative: CC-BY-3.0 20101022 Our stuff can get better! +
  • 9. There’s more than just metadata out there © Copyright 2010 US Advanced Distributed Learning Initiative: CC-BY-3.0 20101018 Pedagogy! Outcomes!
  • 10. How?
  • 11. Do as little as possible, as quickly as possible.
    • Avoid bureaucratic “heat death.”

  • 13. Learning Registry Use-Case #1 © Copyright 2010 US Advanced Distributed Learning Initiative: CC-BY-3.0 20101022 This becomes a gigantic pile of diverse information about learning resources. PBS says “Hey, what unit? Oh, from NASA, great thanks, we’ll use that too.” Physics Teacher says “Thanks PBS, you’ve got great physics resources. NSDL says “Got it, thanks NASA” NASA says “Here’s a cool video on fluid dynamics” Common Metadata Timeline aka: The Learning Registry NSDL says “Hey, 33 physics teachers actually used that unit!”
  • 14. Learning Registry Use-Case #2 © Copyright 2010 US Advanced Distributed Learning Initiative: CC-BY-3.0 20101022 “ Black math” wizards make sense of all this information PBS users say this assessment is often used in conjunction with this assessment. Sakai users say using info from “black math” increases learning outcomes Moodle users say this is good for chemical interactions Promethean smartboard users say this resource is good for fluid modeling Common Metadata Timeline aka: The Learning Registry NSDL users says this other tools helps for teaching to ELL students

  • 16. Enable Others
    • No centralized infrastructure: No “off” switch
    • Control is local, accountability is local
    • No default winners: level the playing field
    • Anyone can provide information on anything
      • You don’t need to own it, to classify it
    • Identity matters: Who says it matters as much as what is said
    • Re-aggregation is flexible (think hashtags)
    • Usage/utility is shared
      • If it’s really useful, you’ll pay for infrastructure
    • Trust is not centralized: expertise is an opinion
    • Gov’t should build what others won’t, so others can build what they want.
