Engaging parents is a great way to increase the efficacy of the Readafun program. Teachers can enter parent emails and prompt parents to authorize their child's account. The main purpose of the authorization process is to allow students to invite mentors (parents, other family members, family friends, etc.) who can view their progress, suggest books, and "like" or comment on their posts and responses. These mentor invitations must be approved by the parent who authorized the account. This is one of the ways Readafun protects kids' online safety and remains COPPA compliant.
Parents can also authorize their child's account through the student profile.
To invite parents to get involved:
- Log in to your teacher account.
- Click My Account in the upper right corner and select Parents from the drop-down menu.
- Enter the parent email address for each student and click Send to Parents to send invitations.
