‘Digital Families’ is a unique by project designed to help every school
support their children’s learning through greater parental engagement.
Delivered by Campaign for Learning in partnership with the e-Learning Foundation and supported by the Nominet Trust this is a major national programme available to all schools that wish to take part. Research evidence across a wide range of studies confirms that parental engagement and interest in their children’s learning has a major influence on the child’s academic achievements. The challenge for schools is how to support their families to express that engagement and interest effectively.
‘Digital Families’ is a dynamic programme that will excite pupils, parents and staff about using new media and technology to support learning.
The e-learning foundation are extending an invite to every school to take part in the programme and we have set up a series of training days around the country to help schools implement the programme.
It costs nothing to take part – except your time and commitment – but the benefits to your children and their families can be spectacular.
The training days are in September but we strongly recommend registering now to ensure your place. More information is available here
