BETT 2007 will see the launch of a powerful online teaching and learning aid that combines the wealth of knowledge within Encyclopædia Britannica with lesson planning and more.

Azzurri Communications and Encyclopædia Britannica will unveil Talmos Britannica at the show, an online system that enables teachers to create lesson plans and other aids to classroom teaching and homework with "greater ease, confidence and accuracy than ever before," the partners state.

Teachers and students will gain simple access to thousands of Key Stage 1, 2, 3 and 4 resources across all curriculum subjects delivered within Talmos. All data comes from the world-leading source of trusted information Encyclopædia Britannica.

Teachers will be able to search the full range of Britannica's online databases for learning modules, text aligned to the curriculum, images and interactive content.

With access to Talmos' unique curriculum tagging capability, teachers will save time on planning lessons by matching appropriate resources to strands of the curriculum and QCA Schemes of Work.

The partners are also producing subject-by-subject lesson plans, including homework, as companions to the service.

The Encyclopædia Britannica includes the work of many of the world's most distinguished scholars. Past contributors included Albert Einstein, Marie Curie and Sigmund Freud.

Gerard Toplass, Business Development Director for Azzurri said: "We are extremely excited about this partnership and we are delighted to be able to showcase Talmos Britannica for the first time at BETT 2007."

Talmos Britannica can be used by any browser on a Mac or PC.
