Director of the Office of Educational Technology Karen Cator will contribute her insight, knowledge and experience during two informative panels during the Software Information Industry Association’s (SIIA) annual Ed Tech Summit in San Francisco taking place May 23-24. On Monday, May 23, Cator will join one other educational leader to discuss “personalized learning,” just what it is and how it differs from adaptive or individualized learning. On Tuesday, May 24, she and another panelist will talk about “open educational resources,” helping to explain what they are, why they are so important, and why governments and foundations are making them such a priority.
