Parents Urged to Update their Computer Skills

I came across this article about the need for parents to sharpen their computer skills and it got me thinking. We devote lots of our time to skilling up students and teachers but not so much for parents. Are we leaving them behind? And what are the implications if we are?

“Homework becomes the time for self-directed discovery in exciting online worlds, where students can collaborate via the internet with real authors or scientists as well as each other. “Professor Stephen Heppell.

If students are engaging in this self directed online discovery, are their parents in a position to support them in their learning? And do parents know enough about the internet to keep their children safe online?

What do you do in your school community to develop parent computer skills? Do you think that this part of the work of a school today?

Go on, tell us what you think?
