Britannica Digital Learning has announced a comprehensive new online information solution designed for classrooms in grades preK-12. Entitled Britannica School, it provides rich multimedia resources for lessons and lesson planning, curriculum support, student and teacher research and homework help.
The web-based service supersedes Britannica's previous school website, providing a host of features and benefits the company says make it ideal for the digital classroom and for access by parents and teachers at home. It includes a wide range of resources such as encyclopedias, journals and periodicals, atlases, primary sources and multimedia linked to Common Core state standards and tailored to the needs of teachers and students.
With content for all grades, Britannica School is designed to enable students to move to higher or lower reading levels easily and whenever necessary, helping teachers conduct individualized instruction. It works on any digital device, a benefit to schools as they use more mobile devices and students bring their own devices to school.
The product provides an extensive array of up-to-date, texts on all subjects needed to fulfill the new Common Core state standards. It also enables teachers to build lessons around those standards.
Free trials are available to schools, districts and consortiums. Interested educators can call 1-800-621-3900 or go to http://info.eb.com/products/britannica-school/ for more information.
