Workshop 1

Introducing School2Home

Workshop 1 introduces parents to School2Home, its goals, and the implementation process.   Teachers and parents introduce themselves to each other and share their views of technology and how it can support learning.  A significant amount of the workshop is devoted to technology and School2Home;  however, the most important goal of this first session is to establish a welcoming environment to begin developing a sense of teamwork and trust between and among families and school staff.
