How does MySchoolsNetwork work?

After your school has signed up for membership you will get your own school account. Personal pupils and teacher accounts will be connected to your school account. With these personal accounts pupils can connect to their peers from all over the world.

Teachers have access to everything their pupils post, send and upload. They also have access to a variety of educational content and lesson plans based on the 21st century skills.

Moderators make sure that the platforms is a safe environment for pupils to interact, collaborate and create.
