The 'iFamilies' project encourages family engagement with the Learning for Life (Key Stage 3) curriculum. Families are invited to attend a digital after-school workshop with their children, where together, they use online tools and create digital resources to use in lessons. The students attending these workshops then become digital ambassadors for their classes to support staff and fellow students.

If you are interested in developing this approach in your centre, please see the toolkit developed by Shireland below.
