The social network

United Schools’s social network revolutionizes correspondence between classes around the world.
Totally free, it allows classes from different parts of the world to exchange through a secured system. Photos, drawings, videos, notes, songs… are shared. They cover topics such as food, transportation, housing and cultural practices.
United Schools’s social network is:

to learn and make the contents of lessons more concrete.

to encourage the practice of language with a concrete method (3 languages available – French, English, Spanish).

allowing student to open themselves up to world from an eartly age.

in favour of planet to sensitize children to environmental issues.

How it works ?

Teachers will get a login pass that they can use to post contents they have prepared in class with their students but they will also enjoy access to productions from others as resources for their own lessons.

Examples of contents

Eco-citizenship at the heart of exchanges

Eco-citizens are aware that they belong to a territory that is the guarantee of their survival. This means that they have rights but also duties regarding the environment.

So, eco-citizenship entails being supportive and aware of the ecological balance and, also acting responsibly by keeping the territory clean and at peace.

Food

What are the cultural practices and food habits around the world? What are the impacts of food on our health? What are people drinking all over the world ? Where do foods come from and where are they manufactured? How is food packaged? Is there any food waste? If yes, what are the solutions to waste less?

As a child, how can I behave in order to be part of the solution?

Housing

What do houses and flats look like in other countries? What are the constraints that inhabitants are faced with in their everyday life? What do they do to get some heating or to stock water? Are they using a lot of energy? Are they using a lot of new technologies?

As a child, how can I be careful with my impact on the planet with simple actions every day?

Transports

What transportation am I using every day? What are the types of transportation in other countries? How do other pupils go to school? How many kilometers/miles do they have to cover? Does this transportation have a good or a bad impact on the planet? Which transportation is healthier and better for the ecology?

As a child, how can I encourage sustainable development thanks to my daily actions?

Cultural practices

Which languages do other children speak around the world? What are their customs, their habits? How do they learn at school? Do they study the same school subjects? How are classes organised? Do the pupils have the same holidays as us? What games do they play in the playground?

As a child, how can I discover other cultures and expand my understanding of the world?
