    We've found that 60% of children's learning in IM's Social Learning Networks, SuperClubsPLUS and GoldStarCafe takes place outside school - and most of it in the home. Intuitive Media's latest research initiative Learning the Family - Parental Engagement in Children’s Learning with Technology looks at how these children learn with their families at home. Funded by a Becta Research Grant to support the DCSF Harnessing Technology strategy, and supported by the University of Hertfordshire, the research focuses on children learning with their parents and other family members. The UK Government's Children’s Plan suggests the next steps for improving children’s lives must be taken in partnership with parents and children and this is manifested in the Government’s £300m Home Access project which aims to provide computers and internet access to families to enhance learning at home. This research takes a timely look at how 4600 children currently learn with technology in the context of their families.
