New Britannica School Webinar

Britannica is available to your school at no charge through the Electronic Library for Minnesota (ELM). Please consider attending one of these free one hour seminars if you need to brush up your skills. Or, consider sharing the information with key teachers too.Join Darcy McCanless of Britannica to learn about the NEW Britannica School (part of ELM) in this one-hour webinar.

Authentic, Trusted Content Aligned to the Common Core and State Standards
In this new edition of Britannica School, you’ll find more content and a wider variety of resources – thousands of articles, images, videos, primary sources, e-books, editor-recommended websites, dictionary, thesaurus, and world atlas – to promote rigor while students read, write, research, and develop vocabulary in the content areas. A consolidated search feature now brings all the resources together in one place for time-saving review. It’s an ideal tool for project-based learning too!

Support for Differentiated Instruction
An easy toggle now enables every student to access the same content at their specific reading level at the same time. Text-to-speech and built-in translation features engage students with special needs and ELLs. And, a new elementary interface offers an age-appropriate information destination designed to appeal to students in these grades.

Interactivity with an Instructional Purpose
New lesson plan builders allow teachers to dynamically create, save, and share interactive activities with other teachers or students. Learning games, animated lessons, and study guides offer even more opportunities to connect with the content.

Universal Access
With the new Britannica School, students and teachers can now enjoy the same viewing experience on a tablet, smartphone, laptop, desktop computer, or any Internet-connected device with a Web browser. Retrieve and explore content anytime and anywhere… classroom, library, or at home.
