Our Commitment to Accessibility

Providing tools that accommodate students with different needs in their learning journey.
SpacesEDU Accessibility Banner
We recognize that all students have different learning needs and ensuring that our website supports all learners is important to us. That is why we are passionate about building products that provide an inclusive learning environment for diverse voices.

Students can showcase, reflect, and celebrate their learning, strengths, and experiences.

We believe in building student agency by providing students the voice and choice to add work using their preferred medium (photo, video, voice, text, and more) - using any device.

Differentiate learning instruction and adapt assessment practices based on student needs.

Teachers can scaffold activities based on students’ support requirements, interests, and strengths, providing instruction and feedback using a variety of media types (including audio and video).

To provide a window into classroom experiences, teachers can invite families and share and celebrate the process of learning.
