Parent involvement goes online: New ecologies of school-home relations

zoom session on a laptop in a classroomThis project aims to:

  • identify forms of digital exclusion and inclusion impacting on parents’ ability to support their children’s education;
  • produce a new conceptual model of technologically mediated school-home relationships;
  • and provide a comprehensive map of school-home connected digital tools and services.

Combining a detailed survey of 500 school leaders with innovative networked case studies across three schools and 18 families, this will be the first national study to comprehensively describe and analyse home-school partnerships in the digital age.

It will provide policy and educational leadership with a roadmap for addressing barriers to digital inclusion, as schools advance their integration of digital platforms.
