Social Learning Institute

The Network of Independent Charter Schools Social Learning Institute offers a web-based learning opportunity through social learning software and activities that include Learning Paths, Resource Library, Global Collaboration, Reporting, and other virtual services. This institute helps to continue our mission to help improve the capacity of teachers, administrators and trustees at independent charter schools.

What is a Social Learning Institute?

Social Learning is a blended learning model that combines social networking with e-learning in an environment that is designed to transform traditional professional development. To accomplish this, Eduplanet creates Social Learning Institutes that are web-based, multi-modal learning opportunities that build new knowledge to enhance best practices. Learning is accelerated through a rich exchange with educators from around the world at a fraction of traditional professional development costs.
