Navigating the Digital Educational Landscape: Exploring the Interplay between Parental Involvement at Home and Students' Self-Regulated Learning

Project Details

Description

The integration of technology in education has transformed teaching and learning. Digital platforms have opened new avenues for learning and skill acquisition. However, despite the extensive research on digital learning and the benefits of parent involvement, the role of parents in this digital landscape remains understudied. Parent involvement in education and specifically middle school is known to promote academic success, overall development and strengthen the support system surrounding the student. With the shift to digital learning, questions arise about parent involvement at home. The proposed research program aims to explore the impact of parental involvement in digitally enhanced learning, focusing on students’ self-regulated learning skills. Furthermore, the research program aims to identify barriers and challenges parents face in supporting self-regulated learning through digital platforms, considering factors such as socioeconomic status, parents' education, parents’ digital literacy and ease of use with technology. Strategies and interventions will be proposed to overcome these challenges and promote parent engagement. The research program will also explore how schools and teachers can effectively use digital tools and platforms to improve parent engagement and collaboration. By addressing these research questions, the study aims to contribute to existing knowledge and inform educational practices and policy regarding parent engagement and digital learning
