“Engage families for anywhere, anytime learning”

Engage families for anywhere, anytime learning is the title of an article in Phi Delta Kappan and written by leaders of the Harvard Family Research Project.

Here’s how it’s summarized:

As society expects children and youth today to explore content-area topics in depth and to develop critical-thinking, problem-solving, and analytical skills, out-of-school settings are becoming increasingly important to individual learning. These settings, which include libraries, museums, digital media, and after-school programs, are evolving into extended classrooms. In this context, it is no longer appropriate or fruitful for educators to focus family engagement solely on what happens in school; educators must reimagine this concept within the many opportunities now available for anywhere, anytime learning.
