Social Learning is the power behind Eduplanet21’s new approach to teacher professional development.
The idea is simple: people learn better working together.
Just as collaboration promotes innovation and creativity among students, it has a similar effect on teachers. New thinking, new resources, and new ways to solve old problems.
This thinking comes together by design in our Social Learning Institutes, intuitive digital learning spaces where educators can collaborate, share resources, and relevant content in the form of Learning Paths.
A Social Learning Institute is an active, living, breathing community of educators that work together to share, quite simply, good stuff that works.
To use a simple analogy, University: Course - Social Learning Institute: Learning Path.
That is, Social Learning Institutes are thematic and interactive learning spaces that host the actual content in the Learning Paths.
The net result is a flipped professional development, where teachers are immersed in always-on social learning, improving their retention of content, long-term capacity, and readiness during face-to-face professional development sessions.
