Nov. 14, 2012 - PRLog -- Mechanicsburg, PA --Eduplanet21, the social learning organization for educators, is excited to announce a partnership with Dr. Heidi Hayes Jacobs, one of the preeminent curriculum experts in education. This partnership will yield professional development opportunities for Eduplanet21 users by creating a new Social Learning Institute and four supporting Learning Paths.

The Social Learning Institute: Learn 21
Through Learn 21, Dr. Jacobs will offer educators high-level expertise in the form of ideas, strategies, and resources to promote curriculum design for the 21st century learner.

Eduplanet21’s social learning approach supports users long-term with a rich community and diverse content, helping to address the individual learning needs that inevitably arise.

Learn 21 Learning Paths
Within the Learn 21 Social Learning Institute, Eduplanet21 will offer four distinct Learning Paths authored by Dr. Jacobs. This content will offer direct access to highly-personalized professional development in four key areas:

1. Upgrading curriculum
2. Using virtual communities for authentic dialogue
3. Effectively engaging learners through social media
4. Globalizing and connecting

Eduplanet21’s Social Learning Solution
Social Learning Institutes are powerful tools that combine video, social-media-style collaboration, and applied practice activities to create professional development that is highly-personalized and job-embedded. These platforms will allow organizations to offer a cost-effective blended-delivery solution that is uniquely able to deliver sustained teacher capacity.

As with all Eduplanet21 Social Learning Institutes, membership is free, and upgraded membership and distinct Learning Paths are available to differentiate for specific district, institutional, or individual educator needs.
