Today Everloop, the online community for tweens that allows them to connect, communicate, and collaborate on projects through a safe “social loop,” and i-SAFE, publisher of media literacy and digital citizenship education materials and programming, announce a joint venture to launch the largest series of school social learning networks in the United States. Everloop and i-SAFE will begin to roll out the new e-learning platform in April, 2011. The e-learning platform developed by Everloop will enable i-SAFE to distribute digital literacy and cyber citizenship curriculum in a way that is current, engaging and compelling for kids, tweens and teachers. “With Everloop’s new technology, we’re actually able to re-define the educational model by using social networking for learning,” says Teri Schroeder, founder and CEO of i-SAFE Inc. “We’re pushing past traditional learning concepts and truly bringing globalization to the classroom through a social e-learning platform.
