In the UK, Microsoft and the Department for Children, Schools and Families have worked together to share the stories of five schools that are using technology in innovative ways to better engage parents in their childrens education.
Research shows that attainment improves when parents are involved in their childs learning, both in and out of school. Both primary and secondary schools will be required to provide real-time, online reporting to parents in the coming months. Learn how these five schools are already seeing the impact of working together with parents to improve the learning experience for students and pupils.
For each of these schools, youll find two videos and one written case study. The Overview video tells the story of each school, why they felt engaging with parents was important, and the impact theyve seen as a result of the work they have done.
The How To video goes into more detail about the steps each school took to improve their relationship with parents, including the technology they used and how they addressed any challenges they faced in this process.
