Flit: A Family Literacy Toolkit
The Centre for Family Literacy is dedicated to helping families grow and prosper. Through programs focused on both adult and family literacy, the CFL helps Alberta families achieve what they imagine—improved education, jobs, and health.
Last year, the team at the CFL approached us with a simple challenge: we need an app. After working collaboratively, and with support from the Edmonton Community Foundation, the Centre and Punchcard launched Flit, or Families Learning and Interacting Together.
Composed of over 100 activities in eight categories focused on literacy and numeracy development, the purpose of the app is to put a toolkit in the hands of Alberta parents for everyday family literacy.
Flit takes advantage of the Ionic Framework, which enabled our team to rapidly design and develop this app, while planning for cross-platform (iOS and Android) deployment.
