Developing Networked School Communities - and Creating the Home-School Nexus

Glenn Finger

on Wednesday, 7 April 2010 14:30 - 15:00 in room 207

Due to the increasing availability of digital technologies for students in their homes and personal lives, access to this growing suite of digital technology remains largely unmatched in most classrooms. Rather than position this as a home-school divide, this presentation summarises key ways in which we can create a home-school nexus through developing networked school communities. This approach capitalises upon the home-school differences by framing the challenge in terms of taking advantage of the rich technological resources which many students have. Specific reference is made to the book edited by the authors of this presentation through summarising four sections of that book - 1. the call for networked school communities; 2. an examination of the home-school differences; 3. creating a home-school nexus; and 4. ideas for implementation.
