Cambridge University Press, via its Global Grid for Learning (GGfL) digital content brokerage business - aiming to connect teachers and students worldwide to a single source of copyright-cleared learning resources - has announced a licensing agreement with the US’s Waterford Institute.

Global Grid for Learning

The partnership is directly in line with our mission to provide every child with the finest education through our educational programs and software, and GGfL is another way for us to reach an even wider audience of teachers and students for this purpose.

Waterford Institute, a global non-profit research organization focused on student-centred educational solutions, will now provide its award-winning digital books and music videos for education through GGfL. The books and videos are relevant for children ages 4-7. The digital books are designed to give students experience with rich natural text in order to develop comprehension and vocabulary. The videos incorporate engaging music and animation to introduce young learners to reading, math and science concepts.

“Waterford Institute represents an exciting content addition to Global Grid for Learning,” commented Julian Mobbs, Managing Director of Global Grid for Learning. “Their multimedia content extends significantly the quality of our existing library, and their early learning resources offer teachers proven tools to engage young students in developing literacy skills as well as understanding key math and science concepts.”

The current GGfL library comprises over one million digital learning resources from a current base of over 40 worldwide content providers and publishers. These multimedia resources include classroom-safe and copyright cleared digital content that supports teaching and learning across the curriculum. Waterford Institute is the latest content provider to partner with Global Grid for Learning.

“We’re delighted to be a part of Global Grid for Learning” said Hailey Kuhn, Senior Vice President for Business Development at Waterford Institute. “The partnership is directly in line with our mission to provide every child with the finest education through our educational programs and software, and GGfL is another way for us to reach an even wider audience of teachers and students for this purpose.”
