Why Can’t I Find What I Need on the Internet?

When you consider that 140 million tweets, 1.6 million blog posts and 2 million YouTube videos are created each day, it’s no wonder we can’t find the exact resource we’re searching for on the Internet!

But there’s good news! The Association of Educational Publishers (AEP) and Creative Commons (CC) are teaming up to improve search results through the creation of a metadata framework specifically for learning resources.  (Curriki is one of several partners supporting this effort.)

Underwritten by the Hewlett & Gates Foundations, this initiative will be discussed on a panel tomorrow, Tue, June 7, at 1:30pmET in Washington D.C. We encourage you to watch the streaming webcast http://www.contentincontext.org and share your thoughts here.
