ASPECT Strategic Seminar on Educational Publishing Futures - 17-18 Feb 2011

ASPECT conference 18-17 Feb 2011

Over two days, this strategic seminar provided a platform where Ministries of Education, publishers and ICT vendors could discuss the future of educational publishing and digital content for schools.

Among others, the following issues were discussed:

  • How professionally developed learning materials for schools and open educational resources can co-exist.
  • How the market for eTextbooks and educational apps in schools is developing now that tablet, smartphone and other mobile devices are becoming mainstream.
  • How ministries are supporting the Interactive Whiteboard common file format in response to the growing demand for interoperable IWB resources.
  • How stakeholders have applied the new IMS Common Cartridge specification to K-12 content and tested these resources with teachers.
  • How tools and services from the ASPECT project enable content developers to improve the metadata of their resources and make their content more easily discoverable.
  • How publishers and content developers can participate in the European Schoolnet Learning Resource Exchange for schools.
