Are Firefly Online products available as an app for students?

English Stars iMaths Sound Waves Think Mentals Writing Time

No, all Firefly Online products are web-based resources designed to work on any device connected to the internet.

However, you can still save any website to the home screen of an iPad to give students the same one-click convenience of an app.

To do this:

  1. Open the relevant student site in the Safari browser on a student’s iPad. (Refer to the list of student login pages for Firefly Online products below.)

  2. Tap the ‘Share’ option and select ‘Add to Home Screen’.

  3. Assign a name for the saved web page, e.g. Sound Waves Kids.

  4. Select ‘Add’ in the top-right corner.

If you’re using Sound Waves Online, iMaths Online or Writing Time Online – don’t forget to give your students the Student Access Code. Log in to your own account and find the Student Access Code on the program home page of the selected year level (or font for Writing Time Online).

If you’re using English Stars or Think Mentals Digital Classroom – don’t forget to give each student their unique username and password. Log in to your own account and head to My Classroom on the program home page (or in the navigation bar) to find student logins.
