PowerMyLearning aims to advance educational equity by activating the power of collaboration between teachers, students, and families—the “triangle” of learning relationships. This enables teachers and families to collaborate on the same learning goals, resulting in improved academic achievement and social emotional learning for students.
PowerMyLearning Family Playlists® are enriching assignments that can be delivered via cell phone in 100+ languages. The playlists are assigned in school and implemented in the home, where students teach what they are learning to a family partner—a strategy that strengthens students’ understanding and social-emotional skills.
During the 2019-2020 school year, 98% of parents reported that STEM Family Playlists helped them understand what their children were learning in school and 96% of family members reported that they enjoyed completing STEM Family Playlists.
In 2020, PowerMyLearning launched a new Framework for Teachers. This resource provides research-based instructional practices that empower educators to better leverage their relationships with students and families to collaborate more effectively on common goals.
Overdeck Family Foundation’s grant allows PowerMyLearning to develop science and math playlists, measure impact on students’ academic mastery and social-emotional learning, and scale to serve more students, teachers, and families.
