Calling all techy educators! Find your nerd herd and join Project Unicorn and Getting Smart for the launch of the Project Unicorn Educator Toolkit. Learn about how connected data can make you a better educator (and give you hours back into your day). In this session, we’ll talk about all of the things data interoperability empowers you to do and how you can walk the walk and talk the talk using data in your classroom.

Skill level: Beginner
Topic: Reimagining learning

Proposal summary

Purpose & objective

Interoperability is a need, not a want for traditional and virtual classrooms. Teachers spend hours manually inputting data into different systems when their technology should already work for them in the classroom, not against them. In this session, we will bring teachers into the fold as end users of applications carrying the data.
