Discover the Power of Learning by Teaching

Family Playlists are fun learning assignments that can be accessed via mobile browser in 100+ languages.

Students teach what they are learning to a family partner at home – a strategy that strengthens students understanding and social-emotional learning (SEL) skills

How Family Playlists Work

Family Playlists leverage the research-based learning by teaching strategy to create meaningful learning experiences and deepen relationships between students, teachers, and families

Teachers Discover Quality Content

Teachers assign pre-built, standards-aligned playlists. Families access via text in their home language (no sign-in required).

Students Teach Their Families

Students review concepts and teach their family partners what they learned in class by leading a collaborative, offline learning activity.

Families and Teachers Connect on Student Learning

Families send feedback to the teacher, providing valuable insight into the student as a whole child and an open door to meaningful family-teacher dialogue around learning.

Why Choose Family Playlists?

Improve Student Outcomes

A recent study found that Family Playlists had a statistically significant impact on students’ math test scores, equivalent to four months of additional learning.

Create Equitable Learning Experiences

Family Playlists harness the strength that families bring as learning partners. Assignments can be delivered via a mobile browser (no sign-in required) in 100+ languages, which makes it easy for all families to fully participate and ensures seamless two-way communication between families and teachers.

Engage Families in Meaningful Conversations About Student Learning

With Family Playlists, teachers gain valuable feedback from students’ families. Coupled with assessment data collected within the Family Playlist, teachers learn more about their students as whole children and can open a meaningful dialogue with families around learning.
