S.02, Ep.03: Family Engagement & Inclusive Technology Practices
The research is clear. Implementing strong, authentic family engagement practices has a positive impact across the board for educators, families, and learners themselves. In this episode, you’ll learn how the Center on Inclusive Technology and Education Systems (CITES) at CAST is elevating this critical piece of district technology implementation across the five areas of the CITES framework: Leadership, Infrastructure, Teaching, Learning, and Assessment. Our guest Yokasta Urena then shares her unique perspective on family engagement based on her lived experience as both the parent of a student with a disability and an education professional supporting families in a variety of roles.
