So it is that if children are to learn from the Autology
programme they need to be taught by a teacher beforehand exactly what sort of information they are looking for, what will be useful for their particular project and how to construct a coherent piece of written work, presenting their findings, all the things that only a knowledgeable teacher can offer on a personal level.
Autology provides an online learning tool for schools and home-based study which enables students to access paid-for content from educational publishers including Pearson, Letts Lonsdale and World Book.
Autology's chairman, Julian Harley, said: "Autology is achieving rapid progress as a provider of easily searchable digital content to school and college students.
Early enquiry levels suggest that Autology will be just one of many exciting investments that will form part of our Digital and Creative portfolio."
