New research commissioned by Frog has also revealed that the vast majority of teachers expect textbooks to completely disappear from the classroom. The research, undertaken by C3 Education, extensively surveyed the views of heads of department and ICT leaders, and revealed that: 

41% of secondary school teachers expect textbooks to be completely replaced by technology within a decade More than a fifth (22%) expect the change to occur much more quickly
within five years 

More than four in five of the teachers surveyed (83%) expected text books to completely die out in schools one day Commenting, Kate Lewis, Commercial Director at Frog, said: This partnership is a match made in heaven for both Frog and Britannica Digital Learning. As classroom textbooks face the prospect of extinction, Britannica has developed into a unique and invaluable online resource. I am delighted that Frog can now offer millions of trusted and reliable articles and images to our users within seconds, seamlessly integrated within the Frog platform, and providing the ability for pupils, teachers and parents to support learning beyond the classroom, anytime, anywhere.
Caroline Kennard, International Business Development Director at Encyclopaedia Britannica said: Britannicas outlook is shaped by our tradition of excellence and an understanding of what knowledge seekers need in the digital age. We believe that this partnership will enhance the learning experience for all Frog users with our cross-curricular content in all subjects from Key Stage 1 through to A-Level and all matched to the new curriculum. With Frogs next generation technology and Britannicas continually updated content, we believe that this partnership will provide teachers and students with one safe environment that will give you an educational alternative to the Internet.
