With $100M From The Gates Foundation & Others, inBloom Wants To Transform Education By Unleashing Its Data | TechCrunch | OER & Open Education News | Scoop.it

Shared Learning Collaborative (SLC) is now inBloom. "Backed by $100 million from The Gates Foundation, the Carnegie Corporation and others, the SLC is, in its own words, an alliance of states, districts, nonprofits, foundations and companies that share the vision of “accelerating student achievement through personalized learning.” However, while the SLC emerged in 2011, it’s kept quiet on the details of its plans — other than the fact that it set out to build a “set of shared technology services” that aim to enable states and districts “to connect student data and instructional materials” and integrate them more effectively for “educators, parents and students.”
