Eduplanet21’s solution is built on successful partnerships with high-quality educational organizations. We are excited to highlight our partnership with the Pennsylvania Association of Intermediate Units (PAIU). PAIU is a non-profit organization representing Pennsylvania’s 29 regional education service agencies. PAIU promotes educational and operational collaboration across Intermediate Unit (IU) boundaries, and leverages partnerships and resources to expand high-quality services to students, schools and communities throughout Pennsylvania.
In 2015, PAIU was searching for a way for all their IU’s to collaboratively create and share high-quality Professional Learning opportunities. They found their answer with Eduplanet21’s Learning Path builder and Online Marketplace solution. This project started with representatives from several IU’s working together to create Learning Paths on mutually identified topics. “Our search for an all-in-one platform for our IU’s to creatively collaborate and share online Professional Learning opportunities led us to Eduplanet21,” said Tom Gluck, Executive Director of PAIU. “Having the flexibility to create customized Learning Paths for our schools/districts’ needs allowed us to expand our high-quality services across Pennsylvania.”
Through partnering with Eduplanet21, PAIU was able to deliver flexible, cost-effective professional learning opportunities for all educators across Pennsylvania. To date, PAIU has published 15 Learning Paths currently being used by thousands of Pennsylvania educators. The current library of Learning Paths span multiple topics, and has given educators in Pennsylvania tools to meet Act 70, Act 71, Act 139, and many other professional development requirements.
All of PAIU’s Learning Paths are Act 48 approved, and provide excellent options for receiving convenient, timely, and meaningful professional development. “We are excited to have PAIU as one of our Marketplace partners, and are pleased to be able to expand their important work to even more educators across Pennsylvania,” said Jeff Colosimo, CEO of Eduplanet21.
