Research shows that meaningfully involving families in learning, and specifically in homework, plays an important role in children’s academic and future economic success.
PowerMyLearning is proud to offer Family Playlists™ , an innovative new family engagement initiative grounded in research findings from John Hopkins University. Family Playlists provide educators with a seamless way to connect with families across language barriers and with greater frequency, while also receiving live data on student mastery and family participation.
How It Works
Educators use Family Playlists to link schoolwork to the real world experiences of students and their families. Family Playlists prompt students to take on the role of “teacher” and share what they are learning in school, and families and students then collaborate on an engaging learning activity during out of school time. Families then provide meaningful feedback to students’ teachers via text or email.
