As the need for autonomous operation of curriculums by city and province increases, and the effectiveness of curriculums linked with local communities is proven, the need for the development and operation of the village-linked curriculum is continuously increasing. In this study, an SW-based village-linked curriculum suitable for small classes was developed for the lower grades of elementary school, and a plan for interacting with schools and students in other regions was carried out. By introducing an online class result exchange plan into the curriculum, the results of this study can be used not only to expand the lack of sociality of small school students but also to solve the spatial and temporal limitations of class exchange. For small classes in the 2nd grade of elementary school, the 14th integrated curriculum using SW was developed and operated in 2021. By conducting online class exchange activities through virtual exhibition environments, the class output contributed to the expansion of students` sociality through the class exchange in a non-contact environment.
