A new cloud based service that allow teachers to build, organize, store and share lessons with other educators. The brainchild of Eric Simons, who you might have heard of from CNN after he got caught squatting at AOL’s headquarters in Palo Alto, California. Eric did this in order to keep the company going and has since got funding in support of this endeavor.
Technology and the Internet have changed the game. Now, for the first time ever, you can work collaboratively with teachers from around the world to build lessons. This gives you more time and energy to focus on what you do best — teaching and inspiring your students. I recently had a chance to sit with Eric for a one-on-one Google+ Hangout to learn more about ClassConnect, his vision, and the future of this great K-12 startup. ClassConnect is currently in a private BETA, but if you go to their website and enter your e-mail address you will get an early invite for the next release of the service. So go ahead and head over to http://www.classconnect.com to sign-up, and please do follow them on Twitter @ClassConnectInc to stay up to date on the latest features and news about it. You can watch my interview and a brief overview video below.
