Increase Parent Involvement with Technology

Technology can help increase parental involvement, which is a vital part of student achievement. Technology provides schools with a quick way to communicate important information to parents as well as to engage them in the educational process.

Benefits of Parental Involvement

  • Students achieve more when parents are involved with schools.
  • Students have a more positive attitude towards school when parents are engaged.
  • Teacher morale is better when parents are involved in the educational process.

Teacher Practices to Increase Involvement

  • Create a class blog/calendar to inform parents of what is happening in your class.
  • Use social media to connect with parents.
