May 29, 2012 - PRLog -- Mechanicsburg, PA – Three PA Intermediate Units have partnered to provide an innovative way to deliver Professional Development for districts interested in building and supporting a birth through 12th grade literacy plan.  This 21st century professional development option will “provide a social media for learning” platform to districts and schools.  Berks, Capital and Colonial Intermediate Units have chosen Eduplanet21; the organization using Social Learning technologies to extend educator professional development beyond the classroom and across the world, to be the learning platform for this professional development initiative.  

The Berks County, Colonial and Capital Area Intermediate Units, are developing nine “Learning Paths” related to building a birth through 12th grade literacy environment.  Through the Eduplanet21 platform, these Learning Paths provide a guided, easy-to-use interface that allows users to go beyond face-to-face learning, access content, question experts, and ultimately collaborate to accelerate learning. This platform will allow the Intermediate Units to offer a cost-effective blended-delivery solution that will best meet sustainability and capacity needs for participating educators.

The “Striving Readers Social Learning Institute” will serve as the platform for nine Learning Paths that include:

1.   Data Analysis and Decision Making
2.   Universal Design for Learning and Digital Technology
3.   Building Blocks of Literacy
4.   Family Literacy and Family Engagement
5.   Navigating Content with English Language Learners (ELLs)
6.   Successful Transitions Along the Literacy Continuum
7.   Implementing the Common Core State Standards and the Literacy Design Collaborative
8.   Supporting Learners with Special Needs
9.   Reading Apprenticeship
