Discovery Education Wins BETT Award for Early Years Digital Content
Dinosaurs module wins industry prize at last night’s awards
Discovery Education Espresso’s Dinosaur Module has been announced as the winner of this year’s BETT AWARD for Early Years Digital Content.
The engaging multimedia content, which uses stunning Discovery Channel CGI footage to bring dinosaurs to life, is one of the most popular resources in Discovery Education’s Espresso service.
The award was presented at BETT’s annual ceremony in London last night.
Lewis Bronze MBE, Founder and Director of Content at Discovery Education said:
“We’re delighted to be presented with a prestigious BETT award, one of the highest accolades in the industry. Our Dinosaur Module is an exciting addition to our award-winning Espresso service, and gives teachers a whole range of multimedia resources, including incredible CGI footage, to bring this fascinating topic to life. The content can be used right across the curriculum, and covers a range of EYFS goals.”
Discovery Education Espresso is a video-rich digital learning service for primary schools. With nearly 20,000 digital media resources, which can be applied to any lesson, the service supports the delivery of the National Curriculum and helps teachers to integrate digital media into everyday learning.
Discovery Education was also a finalist in two further BETT Award categories:
- The Discovery Education Espresso Phonics Module: finalist in BETT’s Primary Digital Content category. Aligned to the DfE’s Letters and Sounds programme, the video-rich multimedia content is used in primary schools across the UK to prepare younger children for reading and spelling.
- Discovery Education Espresso Sweden: finalist in the International Digital Education Resource category. The service is used in over 600 Swedish primary schools, and provides digital media resources for all subjects from Förskoleklass to Year 6.
