After reading and responding to blogs this week, many agree that the first step to preparing parents for differentiation is building positive relationships with them. Once you have those relationships established, it is much easier to communicate with parents about gaming and differentiation in the classroom. You need to build partnerships and trust with the families.
I discussed the importatnce of studnets communicating with their parents. If students are doing the explaining of what is going on parents might be more accepting. They are able to communicate with their child, they can see the enthusiasm that their child has fro wht is going on in the classroom.
Most would agree that there are a lot of parents who are accepting of gaming in the classroom. If you can justify the learning and importance behind it, parents are more receptive.
