Duration: 40 Minutes

In-Person – Hyatt Regency, Salt Lake City


Edalex will join over 600 education and technology leaders to connect, collaborate, and get ahead of what’s next in digital teaching and learning strategies and solutions at 1EdTech’s Learning Impact Conference, taking place in Salt Lake City, Utah, between June 3rd and 6th, 2024. The annual conference inspires a diverse group of educational providers and edtech suppliers to focus on the top issues in education and work together to advance teaching and learning technology that fits all needs.

ABOUT THE SESSION

What do we need from a technology infrastructure to power recognition of all learning in the K-12 space and remove grades as the only signal for opportunity? Alternative models of learning and assessment are not new concepts. Proficiency, competency, mastery and problem- based learning have all been around for a while. Why are they not mainstream, despite research showing that they are more equitable indicators of what a learner knows and can do? Well for one they are difficult to scale and be sustainable and the weight of systemic oppression is real.

In this session we will explore the bold vision of a new learning paradigm and the technology infrastructure that exists to enable the scale and sustainability of these models. Through the sharing of case studies across the US and Australia, the panel will invite participants to leverage interoperable data standards and imagine a digital recognition strategy to make all learning visible and portable for the learner and the wider learning community.
