Solutions Seminar – Learning Stories for Family Engagement

October 13, 2021 @ 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm


This session is brought to you in partnership with:

Learning stories are beneficial to children as well as families and caretakers. Story-telling is a natural form of communication that engages families, and draws them into the conversation about their child.

By sharing stories with families that contain links to frameworks and interpretation of learning, learning stories allow teachers to include children and parents in the learning process. This is especially powerful when the sharing is in real-time via a digital platform. Parents can provide informed feedback on the learning analysis and/or the next steps in a collaborative way.

This  60 minute webinar, by Educa’s Rachel Silva, explores the concept of authentic collaboration, parents as partners using learning stories as the path to a stronger parent-teacher partnership.
