Devices running Chrome, Android, or iOS now all have full access to web-based features and content saved online.

On average, households in North America have seven active connected devices. Nine in ten households whose income is below the national median for families with children have some access to the Internet, although usually through the data plan of a smartphone shared among the family. Managing to all of these variations is overwhelming.

Give learners access to content and literacy supports from whatever device they have available at the moment. Ensuring that supports all look and act the same way, regardless of device, further lowers learning barriers outside of the classroom—which is especially important for students who are already struggling.

How can you address the needs of all students on all devices? We’ll break it down for you.
