Facilitating Parent Involvement

Jump to solution

Our institution is primarily made up of home-schoolers, so we are trying to find ways to utilize Canvas tech to create a sense of community among them. We have set up a parent information course, which has discussions and information, but I'm wondering if anyone else has good ideas on this. We haven't enabled chat-- any good experiences with that?

You mentioned discussions in your initial post, and I think that's a great starting point. You (or the facilitator) can create boards with specific topics. Like-minded individuals will find those spaces. You can also integrate LTI tools like Flipgrid or use embed content from sites like Padlet. I think many of the tools that we use with students can also be used with families. It's an opportunity for everyone to grow and to connect.

Hi Sara - How are families enrolled in the Parent Information course? Are they "students"?

647 Parents are enrolled, and yes they are given the "student" role in this course.
