When families engage in learning, children succeed
When families support learning at home, and collaborate with their child's teachers in support of learning, students experience numerous benefits (Henderson and Mapp, 2002; Jeynes, 2005).
Family Engagement Lab creates digital products to help schools ignite the power of family engagement. Our team works with partners to understand barriers to family engagement and develop solutions that honor and respect diverse families and communities. Our programs align with the US Department of Education's Dual Capacity-Building Framework.
TEACHER DRIVEN FAMILY ENGAGEMENT
Parents trust teachers more than any source when it comes to supporting their child’s learning. We help schools leverage this connection by making it easy for schools and teachers to communicate, and providing families with expert, actionable advice linked to each child’s learning, in their home language.
We uncover and target specific barriers to family engagement unique to your community (such as language, culture and mindsets). We bring parents and teachers to the design table!
We incorporate stakeholder input and rapid cycle research to tailor our technology-based tools and content to promote at-home parent involvement and parent-teacher collaboration.
We educate stakeholders on the importance of partnering with families. We provide staff training and support to build staff capacity and ensure a successful program implementation.
We identify and engage research partners to conduct a cost-effective, rigorous evaluation of the program.
