Education Resources Awards 2013 Winners of Education Resources Awards 2013 were announced on Friday with ARKive being awarded Best Primary Resource or Equipment – involving ICT. 

The Education Resources Awards honour the quality and diversity of educational products and resources, educational establishments and the most dedicated members of the industry. In their fifteenth successful year, the Education Resources Awards are organised by BESA, the trade association representing educational suppliers in the UK sector, and Brilliant Marketing.

The judges, an independent panel of experienced educational professionals, most of whom are classroom teachers, felt that the team at Wildscreen were passionate about connecting people with the natural world and ensuring that more people experience and are inspired by nature.

Caroline Wright, Director, BESA comments: “What makes these Awards different is that they focus on the resources, services and the people that really make an impact on learning and the day-to-day work of the teachers in the classroom. We would like to congratulate Wildscreen for the quality of ARKive.”

Richard Edwards, Chief Executive of Wildscreen said, “Wildscreen’s mission is to use the power of wildlife imagery to inspire greater awareness, understanding and appreciation of the natural world. We are always exploring new and innovative ways of reaching greater audiences, and through ARKive, our leading public engagement and education initiative, we’re looking to reach the younger generation and inspire the conservationists and environmental stewards of tomorrow. We are delighted to win such an important award which recognises our educational work.”
