Company Summary

The Department of education estimates teachers work over 20 hours a week outside the classroom and as standards get stricter teachers will only have a harder time finding exactly what they need. Students also suffer when teachers teach to standards. Unbound Learning will help connect teachers with each other and with the best education content through social interaction, through standards and topics tags, and through tools to organize content.
