Purpose & Objectives
This presentation intends to provide background and tangible models of how the Learning Resource Metadata Initiative and the associated data data elements and recommended vocabulary are being used by several initiatives including the Learning Registry and the Sahred Learning Collaborative. Several states and school districts have efforts underway to use the LRMI to tag the instructional resources they use so they can be more easily found. Participants should have some very basic knowledge of how metadata makes content discoverable, however, no knowledge is required of the algorithms used to generate a search result.
1. Introduction to the problems associated with search and discussion of selected use cases (10 min)
2. Presentation about the LRMI specification and how it differs from other metadata specifications (10 min)
3. Presentation by a participating content publisher as to how they make use of the LRMI open standard and their expectations for how it will improve access to their resources. (5 min)
4. Presentation by a practicing educator as to how they are creating and interacting with LRMI metadata, the role it plays in addressing diverse student needs and the CCSS. (10 min)
5. Presentation and demonstration by another publisher of how they are making use of LRMI metadata and the role the Learning Registry plays in how they support educators. (5 min)
6. Wrap-up and Q&A (20 min)
There are several papers in press about the LRMI which will be available in March 2013. There are also several papers about the Learning Registry and the relationship to the LRMI data specification:
