Do I need a data plan to use Footsteps2Brilliance on a smartphone or tablet?


No. Once you install the Footsteps2Brilliance app and download books and games in a Wi Fi environment, you and your students can use the Footsteps2Brilliance App at any time without Wi Fi or a data plan.


Periodically, you may need Wi Fi to:

  • Update the App.
  • Download new books, songs, games, and activities to use on your device.
  • Upload student progress into the Footsteps2Brilliance reports. (Your progress is saved on your device while you work offline until the device connects to Wi Fi.)*


*When many students use Footsteps2Brilliance on a device every day, the device can collect a lot of data. We recommend connecting classroom devices to Wi Fi at least once a week, so that reports are up to date.
