Dynabook and Encyclopaedia Britannica partnership
The partnership between Dynabook and Encyclopaedia Britannica aims to provide safe and accessible education for everyone. Schools wanting to this offer can follow a simple process by registering the devices through a web link with login details. Schools will then have full access to the benefits provided by Encyclopaedia Britannica’s leading education resource: Britannica School.
Britannica School is a bespoke education resource designed to benefit teachers and students by offering thousands of trustworthy, credible articles, sources and references to enhance the day-to-day learning experience. Students can toggle between different reading levels on each section of learning content, have articles read aloud, and even hear words pronounced. It also shields certain search terms which may have inappropriate or have dual meanings; ensuring a safe learning experience.
Emma Cork, head of UK sales at Encyclopaedia Britannica said,
“Britannica School offers reliable learning content to ensure schools won’t have the problem with misinformation that they’re often encountering in today’s world of misinformation. The resource has been designed through many years of working with schools to understand their specific needs. It gives students access to a relevant selection of our deeply researched and trusted content: a powerful addition to every classroom. The partnership of our content available on the highly respected Dynabooks offers an important and reliable contribution to classrooms across the country.”
The Beckfoot Trust, a multi-academy trust, said: “We worked closely with Dynabook’s reseller ACS to define the best and most cost-effective devices for use in the school for both teachers and students. The Trust has invested in a number of Dynabook devices, specifically designed for education, including the 14” C40 laptops and also the 11inch E10-S perfect for student use. The key deciding factors were the reliability and robustness of the devices, designed to cope with the rigours of a school day and be powerful enough to run all the required school curriculum software. With the additional free access to Britannica School online, an exclusive offer through Dynabook, schools, teachers and students have a safe curriculum based online teaching and learning resource covering all key stages and includes journals, articles, images and video content.”
“It is really exciting to be back at Bett this year and we are looking forward to show visitors our new devices, solutions and accessories”, said Dawn Henderson education sales lead at Dynabook Europe GmbH. “Our partnership with Encyclopaedia Britannica is a critical element of our ongoing commitment to providing schools and educational institutions with carefully engineered, reliable, sturdy and secure devices. Together, we can support schools and colleges with the perfect solution. The education team and I are looking forward to welcoming everyone to the Dynabook stand.”
