Engage Families for Anywhere, Anytime Learning
Weiss, Heather B.; Lopez, M. Elena
Phi Delta Kappan, v96 n7 p14-19 Apr 2015
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.
