Teachers and students need educational digital resources from a variety of sources to use in a single lesson. How do you successfully blend free curated OERs, procured educational publisher learning objects and created content which are sourced from the state, school district, school and the teacher? How do you make them all interoperable in each digital learning environment? How can you support the localization of content for each school or class with culturally relevant content and be able to personalize lessons in one unified platform? Tim Beekman, President & Co-Founder, SAFARI Montage will answer all of these questions in this session.
