how we show up

Diversity and inclusion are important to us. In our words, action, values and beliefs. ​It’s about who we are… and how we do what we do.

The Wordspace is a game changer for my students. It really teaches them how to learn… comprehension and retention start to come naturally! I am thrilled to have Next Knowledge working with me in my classroom! And when at-home learning takes place, my students can use the Wordspace from home. Parents are also grateful for the extra support!

Grade 7 Teacher, École Vanguard

Having used Alice with a number of my students, the margin highlight suggestions create much-appreciated and valuable prompts for note-taking and anchors for recall. It’s a great tool that has had dramatic results in reading and comprehension, but also improved confidence.

Doug G., executive function coach

This program was the miracle we were looking for to help our child. It unlocked their brain and enabled them to finally realize their true potential.

Parent, elementary student

Our students showed significant gains in reading comprehension. Their reading fluency, spelling and vocabulary improved as well. I would strongly recommend this product.

Resource Teacher, Vanguard Elementary School

I had no doubt that it would be successful with several of our classes, but I was pleasantly surprised with the success with all of the classes. I’m so thrilled with the outcome.
