Digital Tools for Homework Help


Research shows again and again that parents have a have a huge impact on student achievement in school and throughout life (Becta 2009, Henderson and Mapp 2002, Simpson 2001). In their recent report, “A New Wave of Evidence: The Impact of School, Family, and Community Connections on Student Achievement,” the Southwest Education Development Laboratory (2002) points out that regardless of demographics, children with involved parents are more likely to (1) pass their coursework and earn higher grades, (2) attend school regularly, (3) socialize more easily with their peers and (4) graduate and go onto university.

In the spirit of helping parents get involved during homework time, Bon Education created a Digital Tools for Homework Help group on Curriki to support educational resource exchange between educators and parents. The hope is that the resources shared within this group will help parents get excited during homework help time, as well as save time and stress.

Check out the group Curriculum tab to see a wealth of homework help resources including:

I welcome you to join the Digital Tools for Homework Help group and to invite other parents and teachers to join as well. Please feel free to add additional useful resource using the group Curriculum tab. You are also welcome to use the group Messages tab to contact other group members with questions and ideas!

As you think more about parent engagement, take a look at my last blog post that includes a great video about parent engagement by Henry Jenkins, Director of MIT’s Comparative Media Studies Program.

    I wanted to introduce you to a FREE math video resource for teachers – TeacherZone. Where teachers can access thousands of 3-5 minute instructional math videos mapped to state standards for grades 3 – 10, free. Teachers can use the video lessons in their classes, embed as homework help, and share with other teachers, parents, and students.

    We have had thousands of teachers/educators use this resource since its launch two months ago. You could check it out at
