On June 10-11, the NSDL held a Vocabulary Workshop in Washington, DC. Approximately 20 people, some affiliated with NSDL projects or NSDL Core Infrastructure, others experts in vocabularies and vocabulary development, gathered to begin the process of developing a vocabulary strategy for the NSDL. The focus was on Audience terms (including Education Level and Mediator) and a resource type vocabulary for educational materials. Discussions around Interactivity Level vocabulary and Pedagogy were also part of the workshop.
