A global learning community platform designed to give students a voice and to collaborate with learners around the world

Overall, the website is easy to navigate. Signing up as a classroom teacher took less than 5 minutes. Before I can set up my classroom project or class code, the creators take time to confirm and approve your role at your school. I appreciate that step of security.

I can't wait to show students the various ways in which they can share information with others. Another appealing aspect of the website is access to various tutorials, videos, and resources for implementation in the classroom. I found the lesson plans tab to be very helpful and I love that teachers may submit their own lesson plans. There is so much curated content for specific subjects and I can see dozens of ways to incorporate this website into my classroom for next year.
