Mechanicsburg, PA — Eduplanet21 is excited to announce an expanded partnership with Lincoln Intermediate Unit 12 (Lincoln IU12). While they have developed learning opportunities for customers in their footprint in the Eduplanet21 platform for many years, they will be expanding the reach of the content they have developed. The expanded partnership, which includes their own Storefront with Eduplanet21, will allow Lincoln IU12 to offer Learning Paths focused on topics relevant to K-12 educators and administrators looking for professional development opportunities to a larger audience.
The mission of Lincoln IU12, a Pennsylvania-based Intermediate Unit, is “to empower their customers to solve their most challenging problems that impact learning and quality of life.” They offer a variety of professional learning opportunities and are dedicated to empowering others in their pursuit of lifelong learning. Through in-person events, workshops, and 24/7 online learning courses, Lincoln IU12 meets educators’ needs for continual learning opportunities geared towards empowering them in their professional development pursuits. “Our relationship with Eduplanet21 allows for expertise to be packaged into any time, anywhere learning,” affirms Dr. Laura McCusker, Assistant Director of Educational Services at Lincoln IU12. Selecting targeted topics for Learning Paths on the Eduplanet21 platform is an extension of the work they are already doing with school districts in their footprint.
Because of Lincoln IU12’s variety of professional learning opportunities, they are launching three timely and important topics for educators: Trauma-Informed Classrooms, Opioids & Substance Abuse, and Evidence-Based Classroom Management, through their new storefront on Eduplanet21’s Marketplace solution. These three Learning Paths focus on information and strategies to help administrators and teachers successfully navigate and identify strategies and solutions for addressing and preventing the growing drug and substance abuse epidemic, mitigating the effects of adverse childhood trauma, and managing classroom behaviors.
It is these professional development opportunities that Lincoln’s new storefront on Eduplanet21 will best highlight. “Bringing Lincoln’s Learning Path topics to the Eduplanet21 Marketplace gives educators the necessary tools and resources needed to address growing issues, and we’re excited to partner with them in providing educators with their vital work,” said Jeff Colosimo, CEO of Eduplanet21.
By bringing this important professional development opportunity to the forefront in the Eduplanet21 Marketplace, the exciting and important work of Lincoln IU12 will be able to reach not only the educators directly located in their service area but all educators who could benefit from their training and expertise.
