Getting Started

    • Funterra is a streaming edutainment platform that offers fun, entertaining games and videos with an educational backbone.
    • Full access to all games and videos requires a monthly Funterra subscription.

      Note: The Funterra subscription is separate and distinct from other SMART subscriptions, such as SMART Learning Suite.
    • We are extremely fortunate to offer a mix of diverse content – some developed in-house and some curated from our amazing partner network.
    • Our games and videos won’t feel like an extension of the school’s curriculum. In fact, that’s the point. Funterra offers edutainment that kids will engage with naturally in a home setting, without the need for explicit instruction from a teacher.
    • The more you watch and play, the better Funterra gets at recommending games and videos we think you’ll enjoy.
    • Most of our games are correlated with academic standards. However there is no specific sequence or curricular framework that must be followed – it’s up to students and parents to choose how they would like to engage.
    • Our videos are educational and built to engage students’ curiosity, but they aren’t correlated directly to academic standards in most cases.
    • Funterra’s offerings change over time – as we work with new partners we’ll have more to add and in some cases older videos or games will be rotated out of circulation.
    • You can access Funterra on any internet-connected device using a modern web browser such as Google Chrome, Apple Safari, or Microsoft Edge.

      Note – some games may not load properly when using Apple Safari, we are working on this.
    • Mobile applications will be available in the future – stay tuned!
  • There are three tiers of access to Funterra based on sign-in status:

    • Visitor: Anyone visiting the site for the first time or returning to it who has not created a free Funterra Member account.
      • Visitors may enjoy a limited selection of games and videos. In order to save achievements and favorites, a user must create a Member account.
    • Member: A user who has created a free Funterra Member account.
      • Members may enjoy a limited selection of games and videos and can also save achievements and favorites. Full access to all content requires an active subscription.

        Note: Users who sign in with an existing SMART ID, usually provided by a school district, are considered part of the Member tier.

    • Subscriber: A user who has created a free Funterra Member account and has an active Funterra subscription.

      • Note: Funterra is part of the SMART Technologies ecosystem and will send users to SMART’s sign-up wizard, which requires you to sign up through either a Google or Microsoft account provider. Follow the on-screen instructions from your account provider (Google or Microsoft) to sign in, which signs you up for a SMART ID.
      • If you aren’t quite ready to subscribe, you can stop here once you’ve created a free Member account. This allows you to earn achievements and save favorites. However, full access to all games and videos does require an active subscription.
