Our Purpose

Firefly is the essential foundation for powering today’s modern learning experience. Firefly’s Modern Learning Experience Platform liberates teachers to innovate for greater impact in the classroom and beyond. One of the ways we can enable this is to provide school leaders with the best tools to transform learning. 

Schools are increasingly adopting technology, both in the classroom and across the entire learning experience. However, since learning is a messy process, and no class is ever the same, schools need more from technology than the solution provided by traditional platforms. Firefly helps schools transform education through our modern learning experience platform. At its core is our learning experience platform, giving schools a holistic and real-time view across students, classes and year groups. In turn, this enables them to engage parents more effectively through continuous reporting, and to make informed and insights-driven decisions on how to support students and teachers. 

Firefly is already a globally established player in the market with hundreds of thousands of students benefiting from what we do. But we have even greater ambitions to help every student reach their full potential. We’re at a pivotal point in what we do, with big plans for our product and exciting opportunities ahead of us.
