Independent Australian publisher Insight Publications has joined LearningField putting their extensive library of English and related resources within the Learningfield subscription for 2015.
Insight brings over 150 titles to LearningField. This includes many book-listed and widely used Australian Curriculum and VCE English texts from years 7-12, grammar and reference books, its popular new Insight Skills Builder and Achieve australian curriculum student and teacher books.
9 Shakespeare plays, together with analysis, will also be provided for the start of the 2015 academic year.
Insight will also provide over 120 text guides for a range of novels, plays, poems and films ranging from Macbeth to Blade Runner and from Kenneth Slessor to CloudStreet. Head of Library Nadia Merchant from Queenwood school said “Insight is a welcome addition to LearningField. These added resources will help students to build their skills and review their in-depth study of select texts for English.”
A number of other titles will also be provided including four film and media resources.
Managing Director Mizz De Zoysa-Lewis of Insight Publications described her motivation for joining as follows: “Joining LearningField……is an exciting step for Insight as it supports our commitment to ensuring that our educational resources are easily accessible to students and teachers, and engage with evolving teaching and learning practices. The flexibility of usage and purchasing options makes the LearningField model especially attractive in an increasingly fragmented digital learning environment. LearningField allows publishers, teachers and students to make a seamless transition from print to digital.”
We are really grateful Insight has joined. We are continually trying to expand the offer we can make to schools and Insight’s catalogue is a very concrete example of this. We excited with what teachers will now be able to do in English: better cater for difference and choice, inform the texts they are studying and have more exercise and reference books to hone their skills. Thanks Mizz!
This is also an example of how we are trying to make LearningField a platform for all relevant publishers. LearningField is a line of business of the Copyright Agency and we are owned by all authors and publishers. We have a mission to give textbook publishers of all shapes a voice within LearningField.
