PESC 2013 Spring Data Summit

By

May 1st, 2013

This week, I will be speaking at the Postsecondary Education Standards Council (PESC) Data Summit in San Diego.  The audience particularly wants to discuss how the MyData initiative can help drive personalization of education.  The MyData initiative is focused on giving students and parents the ability to control their own data and eScholar is on the forefront of helping students use their data to set educational and career goals and manage their progress toward achieving them.

The White House has taken the lead in making it possible for students and parents to directly download data from a centralized data center, and P-20 education agencies are onboard to provide the same service to enable teachers and parents to securely and quickly access information relevant to the students’ learning achievement. You might recall that last Fall, I spoke at the White House Datapalooza to emphasize the importance of using data to personalize education. Now at the PESC Data Summit, eScholar will be talking about the work some of our leading edge customers are doing in this area and the ways this will help students drive their own personalized education.

Are any of you attending PESC this week? If so, leave a comment to share some of your thoughts on the MyData initiative.
