Created in collaboration with teachers, Petra’s Planet for Schools is a resource to support learning across the curriculum, providing learners with a range of activities for online social and community-centered skills, such as simplified email, chat, games and group activities.

Features include a blog and a twin class, which offers students the opportunity for virtual interaction and sharing with a peer class. Twinning with classes in different locations and sharing blog content with distant peers allows students to collaborate with ideas and content under their teachers’ guidance.
