Interesting read from EdTech Magazine on the collaboration between Facebook and Summit Public Schools.

Since 2013, Facebook engineers have worked alongside Summit Public Schools teachers and administrators to fine-tune the Personalized Learning Plan (PLP) at the core of the schools’ educational model. 

“There’s a mutual commitment to continuous improvement,” says Adam Seldow, head of education partnerships at Facebook. 

Facebook engineers have appreciated the immediate feedback from teachers who use their creations in the classroom. And now they’re getting ideas and input from the 19 Summit Basecamp partners — small teams of teachers from around the country who are using the PLP — which is helping them further enhance the tool, says Seldow.
