Core of Education launches its sixth podcast in the ISTE series with Dave Gladney providing an explanation of and discussion on the Learning Resource Metadata Initiative (LRMI) along with how this developing education and technology tool will prove increasingly vital to educators. Dave compares and contrasts LRMI to other education metadata initiatives, paints a picture of exactly how students and teachers will benefit daily in a world with a developed LRMI and answers the pressing questions on much more.

With the goal of making it easier and more convenient to find learning resources that meet specific student and class needs, LRMI sits at the intersection of Schema.org, Common Core State Standards, and resource registries. The LRMI initiative works to empower educators and learners with integrated data and tools to personalize learning and drive success.

"The LRMI project is improving the way educators search and save data," says Dr. Berger. "Dave's effort is cementing the building blocks upon which future educational content will rest."

Other topics discussed include how Creative Commons is collaborating in the project and a peek behind the curtain at possible plans to incorporate LRMI efforts globally.

The LRMI's monthly newsletter is a great way to stay up to date as the project develops.
