A Complete Curriculum Management Platform Featuring Tools for Collaboration and Professional Learning

App of the Week

Based on the Understanding by Design (UbD) 2.0 framework, Eduplanet21 is a complete curriculum-management platform designed to make in-house curriculum creation a breeze.

With its latest update, version 5.0, Eduplanet21 has added a macro design feature that allows schools and districts to create a blueprint of overarching goals, offering visibility into defined outcomes that every teacher within the organization should be working towards. With the new macro design feature, districts can answer questions such as:

  • Are we intentionally teaching to and assessing for all priority standards?
  • Do we have alignment vertically in all grades and subjects?
  • What are our common assessments?

 

Eduplanet21 has also added a new professional learning module, Institute Builder, that amplifies the effects of their Learning Paths by including the option to add discussions, resource libraries, and increased collaboration and communication.. Other updates to Institutes, which are compilations of related professional learning content, such as courses, discussion boards, and resources, include:

 

  • PLUS Institutes, specialized collections of pre-developed, customizable content from world-renowned education authors;
  • Customizable resource libraries;
  • Live chat; and
  • Global and school-wide discussions.

 

As a result of these updates, districts will be able to provide teachers with highly collaborative, topic-based, online professional learning networks and empower them to engage with each other in real time.
