Britannica Digital Learning – STEAM Library
In 2020, the Japanese Ministry of Economy, Trade and Industry launched the STEAM Library, a collection of lessons created to nurture learners’ curiosity and desire to learn. Britannica was brought on board to provide a collection of classroom lessons and associated homework based on global best teaching and learning practice.
Britannica partnered with researchers and academic professionals across all areas of STEM to ensure that students benefit from the latest research in all areas of scientific study. This insight was crafted into bespoke explanatory videos aligned with the UN Sustainable Development goals, guidance for teachers and learners, and interview videos from leading professors and researchers.
Britannica designed the STEAM learning content so that it requires students to take ownership of their learning and practice key skills they will use at university and in the workplace. All lessons are centred around challenging questions, to stimulate their interest, ignite their curiosity and to deepen their inquiry. Students are led to consider how technology affects us globally and to understand a variety of viewpoints on these new areas of research.
The STEAM Library is designed for secondary aged students and their families, however, access is free of charge to anyone in Japan.”

Mussila Music School
Mussila Music School is targeted at kids ages 6 to 11.

Osiris Educational – World Education Summit
The World Education Summit 2021 redefined what professional learning can look like for teachers and leaders from every corner of the world.
We assembled the greatest educational speaker line-up of all time, with over 400 thought-leaders, professors, authors, leaders and heroic teachers inspiring 45,000 delegates from 87 countries, making it (unofficially) the largest teacher training event of all time.
More important than any figure is the legacy of impact and learning that we built by offering 12 months of world-class, personalized, professional development from the Summit, delivered on a dedicated learning platform for all attendees.
Never before has this level of access and equity in professional learning been made available to so many, and never was it so needed as it was during those tough early months of this year.
In 2021, the World Education Summit truly changed the game.”
Renaissance – myON
In 2019, the Seychelles government was aiming to develop a robust programme of study to ensure that primary-aged children across the country were reading regularly. They considered reading and speaking in English key to the children’s curricular needs but were aware that they needed better English resources and a method to improve children’s attitude to reading.
myON, a digital reading platform by Renaissance, was able to offer over 7,000 digital books in English which children could access 24/7 at home or school, giving them vital resources to improve their English quickly.
In myON, there is no limit as to how many students can read the same book at the same time, allowing for whole-class activity and reading together. myON also allows children to download books at school and read them offline at home: a feature very useful in places like the Seychelles where internet connection is often poor.
After a success pilot study, myON is now being used in all 25 primary schools across the country. Since launching myON in the Seychelles in 2020, over 11,000 hours of reading, equating to 100,000 books, has been completed.
