BESt is the online digital resource bank of Bury Education Authority.
BESt is divided into two main areas: Topics – which lend themselves to cross curricular activities; and Subjects – which are closely targeted activities designed to support the teaching of a particular learning outcome.
To support both Topics and Subjects there are a number of libraries that hold still images, video, sound, documents, links etc.
BESt a lasting legacy to colleagues in Bury who worked to promote the use of computers and Internet technology in education. As a consequence you may find some topics and subjects that are not directly appropriate for your current needs.
BESt is open to all teachers.
