It will take you only a minute to connect with 6,000 schools from all over the world, which are already getting benefited from its amazing features.

The only difference is that it is meant for educational purposes only. It enables multimedia learning, and gives each student an opportunity to participate thus making the class more dynamic and more interesting.

Now, here is the opportunity to teach your students more, while creating a fun filled environment for them. You can also see what others are doing in their classes and thus receive valuable feedback that you can implement in your own classrooms as well. This can improve the educational system and makes it more flexible for both - the teacher and the students.
Classting in fact has revolutionized the educational sector by using digital world. Where its biggest advantage is easy to implement system into schools all over the world, problems are also there. Since not everyone embraces technology the way they should, this problem is expected to arise. Additionally, classroom is considered a place where students are supposed to be learning something, and this app might give them the feeling that they are having too much fun. This could also create some problems in discipline that not all teachers know how to cope with.
