Abstract

Timely, responsive communication is critical for creating strong connections between schools and students' homes, and the Internet has opened up new possibilities for reorganizing and enhancing relationships between schools and their communities. This article focuses on how electronic information and communication technologies (ICTs) have been used to help strengthen home–school connections. ICTs can help educators and parents to be more responsive, detailed, and timely in their communication than ever before. However, many potential uses of ICTs to sustain and deepen home–school relationships remain untapped, in part because the tools involved are still challenging and new for schools.
