We are Education for Development and Support Network (EDSN)

We fill gaps towards long-term and sustainable neighborhood community development.   As technology continues to transform society there are widening gaps in important skills and motivation that will require Plexlearning to maintain an agile workforce pipeline for economic and quality of life development.   Local neighborhood communities are where these growing skill gaps are most evident and requires Universal Design for Learning (UDL) one-on-one wraparound integrated support across formal education, informal learning, entrepreneurship, meaningful careers, and purposeful lives.

We believe these local neighborhood communities are where education (creation, conveyance, and use of knowledge) opportunities for simple and easy to use micro learning and retooling for development are most impactful.

We Provide Plexlearning Opportunities In Urban and Rural Neighborhood Communities.

To these ends, we enable long-term SIC partnerships with, private, academic, and government sectors to fill gaps between formal education, informal learning, meaningful careers, and purposeful lives.   We manage long-term community engagement programs that enable local SICs to coalesce around workforce and quality-of-life development issues they view as important, but may not be available, or as effective, if group members were working separately.   In that spirit we provide opportunities for local SICs groups, through community service programs, to create a culture of continuous PlexLearning, entrepreneurship, and neighborhood journalism with opensource technology that complements or expands current neighborhood programs.

Furthermore, we believe future effective career, workforce and quality of life development solutions are not ‘out there’ waiting to be discovered, delivered, or legislated but instead are created by, evolved from, and spread among people, like germs, who are privileged with life-time access to appropriate enabling and affirming educational tools for the creation, conveyance, and use of knowledge.   These tools include but not limited to entrepreneurship principles, technical competencies, and enabling high-quality computer technology applications they can use to cope with, and shape, the world in which they find themselves and consequently enrich the solutions pool of options for everyone toward personal and community development.

Plexlearning takes different forms.

Plexlearning Research-to-Practice Partners (RPP) are at the core of our continuous learning culture that helps people at different stages of life and career stay relevant, hopeful, and purposefully engaged in shaping policies, governance, economic, and quality of life development. in their local communities.   This notwithstanding disparate situations in which people find themselves and their vantage view of the world.

PlexLearning engagement promotes development, use, and management, of local accumulated technical knowledge.   Development includes creating skills training capacity through deep dialogues in trusted shared spaces that enable people to participate, and remain relevant, in the transformation of their world.   Purposeful RPP development engagements encourage proximal learning of best practices that help people acquire technical knowledge, gain self-confidence, and think for themselves as they navigate ebbs and flows from changing circumstances, new markets, and competing interests.
