This article explains how you can download written and teaching resources from Digital Theatre+, along with information on using and adapting the content in your own teaching materials.
How can I print or download a written resource?
Written and teaching materials can be either printed or downloaded by using the relevant button on the top right-hand side of the viewer window, as highlighted below:
Selecting this option will show you the usual printer options on your computer.
Selecting this option will automatically download the resource to your downloads folder.
We ask that you don’t share our resources with anyone outside your organisation as this constitutes a breach of your contract with us.
Why can’t I download some written resources?
Licensing restrictions mean we’re unable to offer download options for some written and teaching resources. The pages for these resources show the following green bar at the top of the screen and don’t show the options for print/download on the viewer window.
What if I want to use Digital Theatre+ resources in my own teaching materials?
Our written and teaching materials are all displayed in .PDF format, which helps to ensure everyone can open, access and easily engage with the content.
We understand that every classroom is different and your students may need our written and teaching materials displayed in a specific way to aid learning (e.g. PowerPoint, large text, etc.)
To save you time creating materials for your classroom, here are a few useful tips for converting our resources from .PDF to Microsoft Word format for classroom use:
