A new ICT discussion is taking place as the transition to digital resources, tools and apps gains momentum and scale in education. The buzz has some technical elements: architecture, data and interoperability. But it also has some strategy elements: How do curriculum, instruction, & IT come together in a cohesive whole? In this talk, IMS Global Learning Consortium CEO, Dr. Rob Abel, will attempt to clarify what the buzz is all about from both a visionary and pragmatic perspective. Rob will also cover the related developments in interoperability from IMS.
