6 Summary of Session 4
In this session, you looked at children’s views of homework and how homework can be made more creative and engaging for children and for parents. You also learned what a global survey of parents found out about what matters most to parents about school and homework.
You should now be able to:
- understand parental support for children’s learning in school
- perceive children’s views about homework
- develop skills to identify creative homework.
In the next two sessions, you will learn about computing and the primary curriculum, and children’s safety online.
You are now halfway through the course. The Open University would really appreciate your feedback and suggestions for future improvement in our optional, which you will also have an opportunity to complete at the end of Week 8. Participation will be completely confidential and we will not pass on your details to others.
You can now go to Session 5.
