Share The Knowledge With Claco

A while back I wrote about Class Connect. Founded by a pretty awesome guy, Eric (you remember, the kid who slept at AOL while coding in the middle of the night?), the goal was to provide a platform for teachers to share resources, easily, in an organized way.

Now, Eric has expanded Class Connect and changed the name to Claco. And he has created a service that could be very valuable to classroom teachers.

Teachers create free profiles and get 300mb of storage. Then they can create binders that they fill with websites, videos, files and more to organize and share.

Take a look at my friend Erin Klein as an example of what is possible.

So you can see in her Social Studies folder she has a video, a link to a website and a file she has uploaded. There is also a public link to share the items and you can post them to Twitter and Pintrest and like it on Facebook. Items can be tagged and there is even alignment to the Common Core which can be really helpful.

Also on the site you can follow other users and be notified of when they update and add new information which is really helpful if you are gathering resources on a particular topic.

The site is in beta but head over there and check it out and request an invite. Oh and check out their Twitter feed, @teamclaco for more info.
