Britannica’s World Facts is an ideal way to get students interested in geography. The facts can be used to motivate students to learn about the world around them.

FREMONT, CA : TrilbyTV, a digital signage software company, has announced an exciting new collaboration with Britannica Digital Learning, a global educative publisher with online products that advance knowledge and learning.  This means that schools will now use World Facts, a regular resource that depicts a country’s capital, population, and one of five country-specific facts. It is a great way to broaden students’ understanding of the environment and to use it as a starting point for geography lessons.

“Britannica Digital are excited to be working with TrilbyTV. I first discovered TrilbyTV when I was sitting in a school reception, waiting for a presentation with the Head. Usually, there is a screen in reception that is either turned off and gathering dust or occasionally the news may be on,” said Emma Lamb, Head of UK Sales, Britannica. “In this case, I was pleasantly surprised that I was entertained by what the school was up to, sports days, interviews, blogs, award days, announcements, and in between all this, the screen intermittently showcased publishers’ content. I made a mental note to get in touch with TrilbyTV as I very much wanted to see if we could get involved and appear on the 1000s of screens in schools across the UK and EMEA.”

Britannica’s World Facts is an ideal way to get students interested in geography. The facts can be used to motivate students to learn about the world around them. The World Facts work well on any screen, but if a geography or humanities department has a digital display, it would be an excellent content item to share there.

“I’m so excited to be partnering with Britannica for our latest content catalogue offering. Growing up as a young person, my Mum and Dad had a full set of encyclopedias that I found so interesting and often used to support my homework. I have no doubt our World Facts content will provide the exact same inspiration for pupils I gained all those years ago,” added Neil Emery, Director, TrilbyTV. “Britannica’s World Facts can be added to digital signage screens via TrilbyTVs Content Catalogue which works as if you had added the content yourself. You can add or remove slides, edit times and dates, and add your information to the mix.”
