Digital divide: parents
From a Head Teacher at yesterday's Teaching and Learning meeting:
People say you can't rely on parents getting hold of important school information online - we have to supply a paper alternative. But if we can't rely on parents having the ability to read important school letters online then there's actually a serious issue with the safety of their children working online.
It's an excellent point. Parents should be competent online these days and if they are not there is an excellent opportunity for the school to make the connection and provide some much-needed community learning.
