“Our team is very excited to use this opportunity to spread awareness of the benefits of inclusive learning in classrooms and how digital learning tools can empower all learners,” said Martin McKay, Founder and CEO of Texthelp. “Texthelp’s digital learning tools have helped to eliminate common barriers students face when learning in the classroom or in a remote setting. With our tools, which are built using Universal Design for Learning, subjects such as math, science, history, and language arts all become more inclusive and support students’ different learning styles and preferences.”

At ISTE22, Texthelp will also be releasing a new industry report titled, “Inclusion: The Key to the Future of Education,” as a call to action for the U.S. education landscape. McKay authored the paper and shares his viewpoint on the importance of creating and maintaining an inclusive classroom for all learners. The POV paper will be available on the Texthelp website and at the Conference.
