You may or may not know that I have another blog focusing on parent engagement resources. And I have scores of related “Best” lists here.
Over the past few years, though, I’ve just been sharing links to related resources there, and have used Storify to collect them.
Storify, however, announced this past week that they are closing down next May. So, I’m beginning to sort through those collections and move key resources to other platforms.
This list is my first attempt at this review. For now, I’m just collecting the most key links here and at some later date will add them to the appropriate “Best” lists.
I’ve previously published The Best Parent Engagement Resources 2017 and Part Two: The Best Parent Engagement Resources – 2017.
Part Two was really the Best of 2016 as I attempted to salvage Storify resources, but I thought it would be strange to title that post with that date as we enter 2018. And this list is really the best from 2015, and is my last one as I re-visit those Storify collections.
I’ll continue to collect parent engagement resources at my other blog. However, I’ll be using the TweetDeck “collections” feature for those future posts.
I’m adding this post to All 2017 “Best” Lists In One Place.
Here are my choices:
Thinking About Texting Parents? Best Practices for School-to-Parent Texting
Kitchen Table Connections (or 5 Ideas to Re-Envision Homework)
