Transcript: This type of communication is good between home and school because you can instantly find out if their is a problem or if the teacher just wants to get in contact with you. No matter were you are or what type of schedule you have you can always receive them anywhere if you have electronic devices. Keep an Open Communication E mails With classroom website parents can also keep in contact with the teachers. They also allow the parent to see what important assignments need to be done or if there are new things that are happening not only in the classroom but in the school as well. "Doing so will keep the lines of communication open and remind parents that your school cares about their child."(Wood, 2011). Personally I feel this is the best way to communicate. Like all the other forms of communication you know if something is going on or if the teacher is just checking in. It's an easy way for parents to stay engaged because everybody has a phone so I feel that thi stype of communication is the easiest. Just while on the phone with one another make sure you respect the parents opinion and input because it is their child. Having a healthy communication between home and school is very important for the child to be sccessful academically and personaly. "When school leaders, teachers, and other school staff respect parents* and share information with them openly and frequently, parents are more likely to trust and work with the school to support their child’s learning."(Wood, 2011). It's important for parents to know what's happening with their child at school. The children whose parents are engaged with school I feel shows their children that they can trust what they learn in school will be benefit them academically. When parents are engaged with teachers it helps motivate students to try their best in school. Improving Communication Between Home and School References Classroom Websites Faculty Presentation Phone Calls Wood, C. (2011). School-Home Communication Strategies. Having technology being used as a tool for communication with parents is very important for the children’s lives because it helps form long lasting bonds. When parents are and stay involved with their academics they know exactly what is happening with their children, and the same goes for the teachers. Involved parents know if they are failing behind or on track, their strengths and weaknesses, behavior in the classroom and etc. because the teachers inform them they can come up with a plan to get the children back on track if need be. Technology and parent/teacher communication have gone hand in hand over the years. As technology has progressed so has parent/teacher communication. Technology grows everyday now we have Facebook, blogs, classroom websites and on top of emails, texts, and calls which these are all used to communicate more effectively. As technology advances so will form of communication. The parents can see what their children are learning in class which helps them to stay engaged, the students can talk to one another if they have questions as well as talk to the teacher instead waiting for the next day. Ways To Communicate By Using Technology

Role Strain IMPORTANCE OF FACULTY In addition to academic responsibilities, non-traditional students also must devote time and energy to several other commitments Even though faculty members may not always be aware of it, their interactions can have a far-reaching influence on their students. Faculty member–student relations are a strong motivator and indicator of learning (Christensen & Menzel, 1998). In particular,Decker, Dona, and Christenson (2007) note that the student–faculty member relationship is more important in predicting students’ social–emotional functioning than their academic performance. -Instructors are very creative and get students involved with group projects, interactive assignments, and other non-traditional ways of learning. -I've had some outstanding professors that really understand the unique needs of Adult Students and the challenges we face balancing family, career, and school-life. They're great! DEFINITION OF NON-TRADITIONAL STUDENTS STUDENT RESPONSES VETERAN STUDENTS OUTSIDE OBLIGATIONS AND OBSTACLES -I love the passion of the Professors in ensuring students learn.

Transcript: Teachers and parents find it somewhat difficult to meet in the confounds of the classroom. Skype gives an alternative option to a formal meeting that eliminates the obstacles of finding the opportunity to meet in-person (Hutchison, Beschorner, Schmidt-Crawford, 2012) . The digital world makes life much easier for all parties . Skyping is another form of digital communication that allows the teacher to meet with parents in a conferences online, introduce themselves to the parents, do group discussions, and give access to each party 24/7. Using skype is more personal than emails and phone calls. This sort of new age technology allows the teacher to extend his/her levels of messaging. Bringing this type of communique into the school will elevate time management for the instructor and the parents. This is a great way to meet with other classrooms without leaving the comfort of ones teaching environment. Children can practice mock interviews during career week. Teacher's can design group projects for students to work on via skype. The goal of faculty and administration is ensure that all parents have access to this technology. Electronic Communication Electronic communication is fastest way to reach out to someone. With text ing and emailing teachers can get instant reply's, other information needed at a moments notices. Having their parents email address and cell phone numbers for text ing will allow another source of a communication plans between the two entities. Teachers can send out instant flyers, homework assignments, permission slips, and so on so forth. Parent can send letters of concerns or just to communicate. This kind of communication take the responsibility out of the students hands. It can also be used as record that was a communication made between teacher and parent. When meeting someone in-person one can get a sense of who a individual is. You really see their body language, facial expression, and eye contact. By observing someone body language you can tell when someone is uncomfortable around you and when begin to be comfortable. Their facial expression give on insight into what a person's mood is. Eye contact usually delivers the honesty of an individual. Teachers should take the time contact each parent in their classroom through a personal letter by introducing themselves and outlining the classroom rules and procedures and letting them know that they have an open door policy to them. Written correspondence is a form of permanent black and white documents that administration and educators should ensure is accurate, understandable for reading by parents. Creating a welcome sign or banner that reflect the various languages spoken in the classroom setting gives the pupil and parent a visual invitation into the environment and note that everyone is welcome no matter their ethnicity, beliefs, gender, and so forth and so on. Strategy Two: Written Communication Social Online Groups Hutchison, A., Beschorner, B., & Schmidt-Crawford, D. (2012). Exploring the use of the iPad literacy learning. Reading Teacher, 66 (1), 15-23 Willard, N.; (n) http://www.educationworld.com/a_issues/issues/issues423.shtml In conclusion "I think we can do better than this" Improving communication between home and school takes focus, consistency, initiative and teamwork. Parents need to know the approach an educator will take in some instances; and the various ways they will use to notify them. Determination is a key element in keeping the lines of communication open between school and home; teacher should be aggressive in forming a relationship with their parents. Being aggressive let the parents know they are important and needed. Social group online is a remarkable ways create a strong foundation for a teacher and their students. This type of group generates support for all persons involved. Online groups can be formed via websites, blogs, Facebook, twitter and others. Everyone can get to know one another through communication and sharing information, photos and so forth and so on. Teachers are the first contact to parents once a child has entered their classroom it is a great idea and in the best interest of student for him/her to form a respectful relationship with the parent.
