Event Details

This webinar will share the design of the BISG's new Educational Taxonomy along with ideas on how Canadian publishers can use the terms to aid discovery of appropriate educational materials and resources online. It will also show the importance of related metadata elements for educational titles.

BISG's new Educational Taxonomy lists the key terms that describe current and emerging educational standards, concepts, learning objectives, and methodologies used in the classroom, such as Common Core State Standards, Next Generation Science Standards, and more. It was developed by the BISG Educational Standards Taxonomy Working Group and incorporates feedback from potential users and from educators and librarians on their search habits. It is available for free download here.
