Objective 4: Deepen parental engagement

 

Update: The Cabinet Secretary has expanded on this objective and set the context in a post on Engage for Education.

 

Benefits:  an increase in the amount of communication between schools and homes, relating to learners achievements; increased involvement of parents in their child’s learning through greater access to opportunities; increased digital literacy amongst parents.

 

What do we need to do:

 

  • Encourage schools to take small steps – email communications, publish calendars online, develop school websites.
  • Provide online learning opportunities for parents (particularly Internet safety).
  • Encourage the social use of technology – sharing pupil work and achievements on Facebook / Twitter / Flickr / YouTube / Google+ etc.
  • ????

 

How will we do this:

 

  • For primary and earl;y years secondary where schools have clear duty of care this could be major hurdle without some national or local authority infrastructure - even a lot  suggested cloud platforms are cautious about age of their users  
  • Need models of good practice to encourage schools to open up to parents ( this is actually more than simply a technological issue is fundamentally a service/relationship  confidence  issue ) .
