A Network for Authentic Learning & Better Parent Communication


The parent-teacher conversation also changes dramatically when you have the learning network in place. If you think about what grades were originally invented to do, it was to give people who are outside the classroom — parents, administrators — a proxy for what happened in the classroom. With the learning network, I no longer need the proxy. I can see the real thing. So, it is a much richer conversation between the parent and the teacher about the learning as well. We actually hear from teachers that parents feel they are so connected now to what’s going on in the classroom. They don’t want to look at grades. They really believe that they have a much deeper insight into what’s happening in the classroom.
