Sanchez, Claudia; Walsh, Bridget A.; Rose, Katherine Kensinger
Dimensions of Early Childhood, v39 n2 p20-26 2011
Early childhood educators are always looking for accessible, easy-to-use strategies to enhance communication with families. Technology innovations have the potential to enhance and create more meaningful school and home communication that involves families and encourages them to support their children's learning at home. Effective technological tools for family involvement that help support children's learning at home include: (1) the telephone; (2) email and Web sites; (3) school video; and (4) technological classroom newsletters. The idea of DVD newsletters combines the traditional newsletter concept for family involvement with the modern concept of digital versatile disc (DVD) technology. This article describes the basic steps in creating DVD newsletters. (Contains 3 tables.)
