Lone Star College-University Park official selected to attend White House education event(2012)
Lone Star College-University Park’s Chief Strategist for Innovation and Entrepreneurship Michael Mathews was one of several national thought-leaders invited to attend the White House Education Datapalooza in Washington on Oct. 9
The MyData Button project, which was introduced in January, is a joint effort between the Office of Educational Technology (OET) and the OSTP to encourage schools and software vendors who hold student data to allow students to download their own data in order to create a personal learning profile that they can keep with them throughout their learning career. In addition, developers are encouraged to create customized services and tools for students based on the information available in their personal learning profile.
“Even though we live in the 21st century where data abounds in our daily life, students and parents cannot effectively access their education records to help them simulate, navigate, and plan their educational journey and pathways,” said Mathews. “By providing students with ownership of their personal data in a secure manner, their educational journey can be more effectively prepared, planned and navigated.”
