Our mission at Ed-Fi is to make the work of connecting data faster and easier, so you can start seeing the benefits more quickly. Students and teachers are creating more and more data points every day, and, in light of COVID, connected real time data is more important than ever. We are thrilled to be a part of this year’s 2021 CoSN Virtual Conference, there are so many great sessions planned, and below we’ve picked out our top “Can’t Miss” sessions that will help you on your interoperability journey. 

Our first stop: Session: We’re Here to Help

Data interoperability is crucial for success in education. Join Project Unicorn and school leaders to learn how interoperability implementation kept students learning during the COVID-19 crisis.
