ClassBrain and Education

ClassBrain has established itself with teachers and school districts across the country and around the world as a well-respected resource for educators.

The following information will give you a brief example of how ClassBrain is viewed in the field of education.

GEM Collection holder

GEM (Gateway to Education Materials)
GEM has accepted ClassBrain as a collection holder. This special database was created by the Department of Education to supply "one-stop" access to collections of Internet-based educational materials available on various federal, state, university, non-profit, and commercial Internet sites. This allows teachers to search and locate our materials (as one example: the ClassBrain State Report Section) directly through the main database. This database is recommended to instructors by state and district education departments.

CyberSurfari -Primary Sponsor

ClassBrain is a primary sponsor of CyberSurfari, a world famous Internet treasure hunt designed to help students learn to use the Web safely and effectively. Students visit more than 100 handpicked destinations throughout the Internet on their quest for information.

Teachers around the world bring their classes online for these competitions. Clues are hidden across the ClassBrain website (in locations of our choosing) during three different games throughout the year. Students then scour various websites, especially those of the primary sponsors like ClassBrain, to locate clues and find answers. Placement of the clues allows us to highlight specific areas, or pages, of our site during each of the games.

ClassBrain Veteran’s Memories Project- Library of Congress

ClassBrain has signed on as a partner of the Library of Congress Veteran’s History Project. This partnership allows us to be an official collection agency for stories and historical materials of US Veterans.

Oral history projects are a popular assignment in schools from middle school through college. By correlating oral history projects and movies about soldiers and veterans, students can see the link between gathering information and the preservation of the stories of our country’s history. The affiliation with of the Library of Congress gives the teachers added comfort with the resources.

This amazingly impressive site by ClassBrain, Inc. provides valuable educational resources for students, parents, and teachers. The site is equipped with various learning activities and games for students ranging from grade levels Pre-K to 12. In addition, this site contains information on world countries and US states. Both the country and state reports are arranged in alphabetical order and provide data on history, statistics, maps, geographical information, government, economy, and much more.
