Class2Class: Building Strong Connections in the Digital Classroom

In today’s educational landscape, the traditional boundaries of classrooms are rapidly dissolving. More and more teachers are embracing the idea of collaborating with other classes around the globe.

Creating a User Accounts

Getting started on Class2Class is as simple as creating a user account. With just a few clicks, educators and students can sign up and gain access to a world of collaborative learning opportunities. By providing basic information such as email and setting up a profile, users can personalize their Class2Class experience and start connecting with peers from around the globe.

I created two Level 4 project collaborations in Class2Class with Coding4Climate and the Climate Action Project with Korean and Taiwanese classrooms. I’ll make a separate post about my experience using the platform soon.
