You’ll find four webinars on this page, covering the use of technology to support parents and the use of technology to deliver training to practitioners.
Many of you are shifting your offer to parents from face to face groups to live virtual groups. We have created a How to Guide and we ran a live webinar which included practical and creative ideas to support parents and facilitators in running groups via a digital platform. You can access the webinar below, if you missed it. Feedback indicates that there are many similarities to running the parenting groups as live virtual groups rather than face to face, in using the Manual and running the activities. There are also differences! It is not a presentation by Powerpoint or similar. The key is to use the Facilitators’ Manual and run the activities. If you want to, you can replicate using a flipchart by using the Whiteboard function in Zoom or your digital platform. If you want to divide parents into small groups you can use the Breakout room function in Zoom.
If you live in an area with a Multi User Licence to use our online courses across the population or are prepared to provide the online courses for parents, it is possible to run a live group using the online course as a structure. Sounds confusing? Watch the next webinar by Karen Jackson in Hull.
