Engaging Families as Partners in Remote/Hybrid Learning
The role of parents in their child(ren)’s learning has shifted, putting significant new demands on families. Without a teacher physically present with the students, parents and older siblings have been tasked with helping students engage with their schoolwork. This has created competing demands for parents who are working at home and a near-impossible situation for parents who are essential workers and families that are dealing with illness from COVID-19. Parents desire more and better communication with their students’ teachers during remote learning. TRLE will help build educator capacity to transition effective partnering practices used in traditional formats into remote/hybrid learning environments.
