Transforming literacy learning spaces
Internet Upgrade in Schools: Joshua Thompson (left) and Kelyssia Miller (right) of Duhaney Park Primary both display their assignments to Flow's Courtney Bell and Principal Colleen Reid-Grant respectively. Flow Foundation supported the school’s educational goals by providing Wi-Fi for the entire school campus.

The internet has had a revolutionary impact on the education system and how we learn. Traditional classrooms have been transformed into interactive learning spaces and many of our students now rely on the internet and smart devices for critical research that supports their learning goals.

With the help of technology, the Flow Foundation has been supporting an integrated approach to learning centres by providing internet access and devices for underserved individuals and communities. This provides the opportunity to tap into the full potential of our children by deepening their connection to the learning process through diversity and greater engagement.

Some of the literacy learning spaces Flow has helped to transform include schools, community centres and state homes. Here are some of the places and peoples we’ve impacted through digital inclusivity.
