San Bernardino County Preschool Services Department Director Phalos Haire shares an update about the Footsteps2Brilliance, Inc. application, which parents can use to help their children continue learning at home. The free app can help advance a child’s learning and literacy skills.
Footsteps2Brilliance partnered with Teach the World Foundation and OBAT to serve children in Bangladesh with a virtual education program during pandemic when children could not meet in person.
Today, every school district needs to be prepared for distance learning. Footsteps2Brilliance® takes the stress out of creating an effective school-to-home connection. We have been successfully engaging parents and accelerating literacy for more than a decade.
Dr. Barbara Nemko champions the 21,000 students in her care as five-term superintendent of Napa County Schools, and learners everywhere. In this video, she emphasizes the value of starting early with digital literacy. The power of interactive literature may be more effective at preventing an achievement gap than traditional early enrichment interventions. After the rousing success of a pilot program in Napa with pre-K children in a four-week summer iPad reading program, the district provided iPads and the platform Footsteps 2 Brilliance to the families of every student in Napa County Schools. Check out the app Dr. Nemko advocates in this video.
Dr. Demetrus Liggins, Superintendent Greenville ISD, talks about how creating a Model Innovation City powered by Footsteps2Brilliance saved his district and brought it from a D to a B rating.
