Where to begin!
1:1 devices have increased dramatically since 2019.
We know that a digital classroom cultivates important skills for students that extend beyond the classroom.
However, classwork that was once done on paper doesn’t translate to the screen.
If a website or app is poorly designed, users are more likely to leave within the first 10 seconds.
Similarly, students disengage when unsure about how to interact with classwork.
This affects K-12 students broadly, especially those with learning differences or who are learning English.
Educators need a more effective toolkit to sustainably accommodate all learners
Sticky stickers go beyond being mere classroom novelties; they serve as purposeful visual aids enabling teachers to seamlessly integrate ELL (English Language Learner), IEP (Individualized Education Program), and 504 accommodations into their lesson plans. Additionally, they facilitate the incorporation of Universal Design for Learning (UDL) strategies, which are universally acknowledged as enhancing the efficacy of teaching.
While these stickers are beneficial for all learners, they were made with special populations of learners at the top of our hearts and minds:
Stickers show and tell important concepts and vocabulary to help remove language barriers and support students experiencing hearing loss.
Stickers are automatically inserted with alt text for students using screen readers, and all graphics meet WCAG guidelines for accessible color contrast.
