The resources offered by Britannica Digital Learning cater to needs resulting from tighter budgets and stretched workloads, helping to improve support for all learners, at all abilities at Primary and Secondary level.
“Britannica School’s dynamic homepage offers engaging, constantly-updated information and interactive activities, ideal for homework activities and tutorial sessions,” says Helen Walker, director of edtech at Bright Tribe. “The breadth and depth of content offered throughout the site is superb and offers a safe, secure, validated walled-garden of material which students can explore; there is a rich, curated library of articles, images, videos and journal articles which students can use for guided or independent research.”
Britannica Digital Learning, a part of Encyclopædia Britannica, recognise that schools are looking for resources that have trusted content which they can be assured is safe for all ages. Differentiated reading levels are a hugely popular way for schools to know that they have content available for all learning levels, from gifted and talented to SEND students.
Andrew Isaac, group marketing & communications director at the National Fostering Agency, said: “The layout and content is easy to follow and very relevant to their school work, but most importantly, it is a trusted source of accurate facts. Feedback from our carers and children has been excellent and usage at all levels has exceeded our expectations.”
Britannica won the BETT best Digital Collections and Resource Banks award in 2015 for its Britannica School resource.
