SMART Learning Marketplace opens new world for teachers and students
CALGARY, Alberta --- November 19, 2007 --- SMART Technologies announces that schools, teachers and students now have access to the SMART Learning Marketplace, a Web-based subscription service which provides the largest repository of on-line education content available. With the SMART Learning Marketplace, teachers can bring a world of learning resources into the classroom. They can take students on virtual field trips to many of the world’s best museums and galleries. They can move beyond the confines of a textbook to create compelling learning experiences with the Marketplace’s resource library by using video files, images, audio files, or manipulatives to enhance lessons, while supporting a variety of learning styles. Featuring more than one million professionally developed pieces of content, the library is regularly updated, so there is always a myriad of multimedia resources available to help create engaging lesson activities. All of the content in the Marketplace is copyright-cleared, making it legal to use. The SMART Learning Marketplace, powered by the Global Grid for Learning, is the result of an alliance between SMART and Cambridge University Press, the oldest printer and publisher in the world.
