Knowledge Box

Knowledge Box, from Pearson Broadband, provides teachers with access to thousands of new digital resources developed to support primary literacy and numeracy. Each of the resources has been mapped to the national curriculum and the literacy and numeracy strategies, so teachers can find and select the right resources for key stages 1 and 2. Many of the resources build on curricula development from Longman, Puffin and Dorling Kindersley. They include high-quality video, animation, interactive software and detailed lesson plans to help teachers use ICT in the core of their whole-class teaching or in groupindividual work. All the resources can be accessed quickly and easily straight from the school network and kept secure and up-to-date by Pearson Broadband through a remote link.Pearson Broadband, 80 Strand, London WC2R 0RL
