EDUPLANET21 HAS REVOLUTIONIZED
THE EDUCATION INDUSTRY
Eduplanet21 is a 21st century professional development tool. Our social learning platform allows educators to connect directly with leading industry experts from anywhere on the planet. And as learning changes, so do we.
CEO Jeff Colosimo sees the opportunity for more authentic, efficient, and less expensive platforms to support educators--which is where Eduplanet21’s innovative approach comes in.
This social learning software blends social networking and e-learning to shorten the time to mastering, increase retention, and increase engagement.
Within each of our Social Learning Institutes (analogous to schools) are Learning Paths (analogous to courses) that frame high-quality content on today’s hottest 21st Century topics. The end result is active learning, expanded networks, and full transparency of the learning and collaborative process.
To find out more about social learning, establishing an Eduplanet21 Social Learning web site for your school or district, or dig into one or more of our institutes with their learning paths, you can Contact Us, or email, or call 717-884-9900.
