SMART Learning Marketplace

The SMART Learning Marketplace offers you over a million ways to bring the world into your classroom. You can find images, manipulatives, text documents or multimedia files to create lessons on any topic, whether it’s Socrates or space travel.
Teachers can take students on virtual field trips to many of the world’s best museums and galleries. They can move beyond the confines of a textbook to create compelling learning experiences with the Marketplace’s resource library of video files, images, audio files and manipulatives.

New resources are added regularly. All of the content in the Marketplace is copyright-cleared and classroom safe.
The SMART Learning Marketplace, powered by the Global Grid for Learning network, is the result of an alliance between SMART and Cambridge University Press, the oldest printer and publisher in the world.
And even if you don’t have a SMART Board interactive whiteboard or Notebook software, you can still enjoy the convenience of having such a vast collection of resources at your fingertips. The content can be used on any computer or interactive whiteboard to create lessons that keep students engaged and focused on learning.
