United Classrooms

Image your students connecting with other students not only in their classroom, in their school, in their city, in their state BUT connecting with students around the globe? Image the wealth of knowledge that this connection will provide for your students and the experience they would obtain. United Classrooms, a FREE resource, connects classrooms around the world. Teachers simply sign their class up and students are connected to a secure classroom profile page which enables them to share content with their teacher, classmates, parents and collaborate with classrooms around the world. Go above and beyond the classroom walls and enter in to a world of connectivity. Need inspiration on what United Classrooms can do? View this video and be "wowed"!
