"Parents are a child's first teachers.
Educators and parents need to work together
to guide children to learning adventures."

"Parents are lead learners until their children take the reins of learning themselves." @cybraryman1

Teacher Notes: Invite parents in to your classroom at the beginning of the year and do a hands-on workshop with them showing them how you will be using technology in your class.  Then plan a Tech Night where the children can demonstrate how they are using technology

Teacher Notes: In the 1990's I taught parents in my inner city school how to use computers so they could get jobs. I started with keyboarding and then progressed to teaching them word processing and I had them learn how to set up and use databases and spreadsheets.

Parent Support Groups

My wife helped establish a Parent Center in the community where we lived.  Parents went through extensive training with the licensed Social Worker to become parent facilitators.  Some of the programs that were given: Sibling Rivalry, How To Talk So Kids Will Listen, Getting Ready for Middle School, Single Parents and Parents of Children with Special Needs...Parents and Teachers were welcome to use our Resource Library and talk to the Social Worker, Parent Facilitators and other Administrators.
