Abstract

The Bridges project developed and implemented a new model for connecting home (informal) and school (formal) education through the delivery of digital media resources and training provided by U. S. public television stations. The project goals were to: (1)improve parents and teachers' use and perceived value of digital technology, (2) improve communication between teachers and parents, (3) promote parental involvement in their child's reading and writing development, and (4) help close the "digital learning divide" that exists for low income (Title I) students and their parents. This paper describes the four-year project and the series of research and evaluation results.
