What educators are saying

“My students were engaged, but not overwhelmed, with information. All [reading levels] of my students could understand the information.” – Nancy Henderson,
South Junior High School, Boise, ID

“The virtual classroom is the most effective classroom resource I’m aware of to make certain that our students are media-savvy for the challenges that await them in the 21st century.” – Eric Nadelstern, former chief schools officer, New York City Department of Education; professor, Columbia University Teachers College

“I really like how relevant and current the examples are as well as the constantly changing/ engaging formats you have. I’d like to share this with teachers.” – Maria Tarasuk, social studies supervisor, Montgomery County (MD) Public Schools
