On February 21, 2017, Future Ready Schools® (FRS) held a webinar as part of its leadership hub, an online one-stop-shop of professional learning opportunities for school leaders.

As the use of digital solutions increases in the classroom, districts find themselves inundated with disparate data and proprietary access paths making management and use of these solutions challenging and sometimes impossible. The role of interoperability and open standards is top of mind for many districts around the country as it plays a critical role in solving these challenges and unlocking the potential of digital solutions. Panelists discussed

Panelists also addressed questions submitted by viewers from across the nation.
