New Digital School Solution Exemplifies Britannica Today

“This week, Britannica Digital Learning is proud to introduce Britannica School, a new online service that we believe will have a major impact on schools in the United States and around the world. Britannica School provides a robust online solution for the knowledge and information needs of teachers and students at school and at home. It’s a product designed with the classroom in mind but with the understanding that the work of the classroom continues outside its walls—at home, on the school bus—anywhere homework is done, lessons prepared, and school projects completed. It’s designed for a wide range of purposes—lessons and lesson planning, homework assignments, class projects, research, and browsing—making it one of the most versatile digital assets for students and teachers today.
