ClassBrain and Education

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.


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.


ClassBrain is identified as a top site by search engines and educators.

ClassBrain is recommended by state and federal education departments, school
districts, and individual public and private schools.

ClassBrain: State Reports

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. This site is a breath of fresh air for those parents and teachers
discouraged by the plethora of untactful Internet sites currently accessible
to children. [MG]

Although it is the ideal for students to consult many resources for state reports,
teachers really need to be aware of what’s on the web. ClassBrain has assembled
state report resources for all those students (and parents) doing reports on
U.S. states. Templates, clipart and other resources are available here. The
websites gathered for each state include the official state websites, so this
will be a place to start for many students. (added 2/6/02,
