Dunedin digital educator Education Perfect (EP) has teamed up with Otago Daily Times publisher Allied Press to provide teachers and pupils with access to the social studies classroom resource, ODT Extra!.

ODT Extra! is a 16-page printed education newspaper, and since 2005 it has been delivered to schools and pupils, up to 12 times per year.

Allied Press chief executive Grant McKenzie said as of February, the strategic partnership between Allied Press and Education Perfect would provide schools access to ODT Extra!, through their Education Perfect subscription.

"Allied Press has continued to support ODT Extra! which is now the only Newspaper in Education product left in New Zealand.

"This new partnership with Education Perfect is an important step for Allied Press, as it allows us to make ODT Extra! available on the widely used EP platform, without sacrificing the key elements that have made ODT Extra! special in the first place.

"The partnership enables teachers to change the way they use ODT Extra! in the classroom, minimise waste and provide Allied Press with the ability to keep up with changing trends and demands in the classroom, now and in the future."

Education Perfect partnerships director Anna Redmile said EP provided curriculum-aligned content and the ability for teachers to create and share their own lessons.

"We are incredibly pleased to be able to bring ODT Extra! to the EP platform, as it provides so many benefits to teachers and students.

"It will deliver quality journalism to the next generation on the trusted and engaging EP platform.

"This innovative approach and investment will enable ODT Extra! to continue to be used and loved by students and schools for years to come."

Allied Press will continue to publish ODT Extra! in print as part of its multi-channel strategy.

Teachers can subscribe to ODT Extra! from today through the ODT Extra! website.
