Summary

"Nothing." That's the classic student response to a parent's question, "What did you do today?" Parents have long wanted to understand how their kids are doing in school; research has shown that doing so helps children succeed. Yet schools typically employ the same manual approaches that they have for decades, often leaving out parents who lack time or savvy. Innovative approaches are bringing parent engagement into the digital age. Employing multilingual personalized video, "nudging" through texting and targeted resource-distribution, educators are meeting parents where they are and on their terms - in their language, through their phones, and through personalized information.
