FEDERAL Member for New England, Barnaby Joyce has welcomed the launch of an innovative new mobile app to encourage parents to get more involved in their children’s education.
Mr Joyce said parents and students in the New England Electorate and right across NSW would benefit from the Learning Potential app.
“The Learning Potential app, which is available for free on Android and Apple devices, makes it easier for parents and carers to be part of their child’s learning, and will help get the most out of the time they spend with their child,” Mr Joyce said.
“The app is packed full helpful articles and videos that offer tips and ideas for parents to become more involved in their child’s learning.
“Parents’ involvement is an important part of a good education and with the strong support of school teachers and families, children can do better through their school life.
“The app is available for downloading from the App Store and Google Play, and I encourage all parents in the New England Electorate to check it out,” he said.
The Learning Potential mobile app was launched recently by the Minister for Education and Training, the Hon Christopher Pyne MP.
“This app offers inspiring ways for parents and carers to become more involved in their child’s learning, from the high chair through to high school,” Mr Pyne said.
The Learning Potential website also contains all of the content from the app to make sure that content is available to people who do not own a smart device, with all content available in an accessible format.
