The particular situation that has prevailed in our schools since the start of the pandemic has changed the way of teaching. Whether it is distance class, online learning, hybrid teaching modalities or classroom presence with recommended health protections, digital educational resources (NERs) have proven their relevance for teaching.

Under current conditions, how can students' engagement in their learning be strengthened? In this regard, parents can become valuable allies. Indeed, research indicates that the more the engagement of parents, teachers and peers increases, the more student engagement increases (Borup et al., 2014).

Now that most students have access to a computer or tablet at home, as well as an Internet connection, it is possible to use the NERs to enhance the help that parents can provide in their learning. child. This work in tandem also makes it possible to maximize the screen time of the child with “benevolent” resources, another advantage of the involvement of parents.

Several digital educational resources (REN) allow parents to be involved. Here are some examples from the new site www.areneducation.ca, whose mission is to offer a dynamic directory entirely dedicated to the promotion of digital educational resources (REN) relevant to teaching.

KOKORO lingua

Intended for kindergarten and 1st cycle primary children, KOKORO lingua is a method of awakening to English as a second language. Via short videos, English-speaking children talk about their daily life, share songs, games and their world simply and happily.

The activities offered are an excellent learning method for children and are designed as games to be played with parents, making learning new words fun.

Laugh with inference

Aimed at students aged 6 to 14, Rions with Inference is a collective and interactive comprehension activity that aims to make them more active and more strategic while reading. Students will use four strategies (predict, clarify, question and summarize) to help them understand better, using jokes.

Activities with progressive disclosure can be done at home with a child-parent team, with humor helping to keep the learning process fun.

Other great resources to encourage reading

  • BOOK PRUNELLE offers an allied children's literature of choice for discussing diversity and culture.
