Learn: Parents

Parents

Did you know that parental involvement in a child’s education contributes to student achievement and success? According to a Harvard Family Research Project study, “the achievement scores of children with highly involved parents was higher than children with less involved parents.” Plus the Corporation of Public Broadcasting notes that when parents incorporate children’s media in early childhood training, it serves as a bridge to formal education.

We’re here to help you become a tech savvy, active, involved parent.  This page serves as a portal to our recommended videos, handouts and links to helpful sites.
