Dynabook and Encyclopaedia Britannica partner on educational content

A newly inked partnership between Dynabook Europe and Encyclopaedia Britannica will bring ‘Britannica’s School’ learning content to Dynabook’s educational devices, allowing students to research information.

Schools can access this information 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 education resource: Britannica School.

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.”

 Dawn Henderson education sales lead at Dynabook Europe GmbH said: “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.”
