Designing an Educational Ecosystem

The question of interoperability and data flows is a problem of systems. We envision an open, adaptable system that will enable access to high quality materials from diverse sources, support effective data flows and provide analytics that inform teaching and
learning practices. The big picture is a massive ecosystem with large platforms and data flows. In the micro view, we imagine enabling engaging instruction design, communications and productivity. Does authentication/access to systems and data
gathering in your district seem overwhelming? This deck explores system layers and discuss solutions for different districts’ needs.
