Flashlight360 was created from a unique collaboration between a researcher, an educator, and an EdTech entrepreneur who saw the unmet needs of emergent bilingual students. They worked hand in hand with teachers in the midst of COVID to create a tool that allowed students to asynchronously showcase their speaking and writing at a time when most of the education world scaled down their efforts and refrained from teaching new content.
This tool became Flashlight360 and enabled teachers to listen to their students in a way they had never done before. Students and teachers grew closer with an increased focus on language development, in spite of distance learning.
We shine a light on students and provide teachers with the tools to accelerate language development.
