An Estuary and eduClipper Announce Professional Development Partnership
Baltimore, MD — Baltimore edtech company An Estuary and NYC edtech platform eduClipper announced today a partnership to deliver online professional development bringing social media and Common Core together in a blended learning environment for educators.
Starting today, educators may sign up at http://sanderling.io to take a free eduClipper-integrated online course through An Estuary’s flagship professional development platform, Sanderling. The course is designed to help teachers to create digital portfolios for Common Core standards using eduClipper’s popular educational web clipping platform.
“An Estuary’s Sanderling is a powerful platform for educators that enhances professional development by making it a more collaborative and social experience,” said Adam Bellow, CEO of eduClipper, “That is why we at eduClipper are so excited to partner with An Estuary for our first professional development course. In the same way we look at learning with students to be a completely social and collaborative experience, we feel that An Estuary takes that same approach for building learning platforms for educators.”
eduClipper joins Silicon Valley based edtech media platform EdSurge and the Washington DC based Education Industry Association as being among An Estuary’s first cohort of preferred partners offering professional development courses through the Sanderling social platform.
“We are very excited to join with eduClipper to bring the next generation of professional development to educators,” said Shelly Blake-Plock, CEO of An Estuary, “This marks a new stage in the development of social technologies promoting meaningful and on-demand online professional learning.”
