�‘I Think It's Kind of Made Everybody a Little Closer:’ A Virtual Platform Extending Parent Learning as Community of Practice

Research output: Contribution to journalConference article

Abstract

Analysis of interviews with parents in a program for families with young children revealed evidence of Community of Practice domain knowledge and shared practice. Membership (inclusive of children and staff), relationship values, learning processes and context features were community elements experienced, and when using an online social platform. Online spaces for parents that complement offline community, continue a focus on their children, and that are ‘socially secure’ may foster engagement that extends learning.
