This report provides information on practical lessons learned in implementing a technology-based project with immigrant parents. Carried out over five years, the project brought parents, students, teachers, and community members together to develop parents’ computer skills and knowledge of their children’s schooling experiences. The report discusses the key issues and challenges that the research team encountered, such as program location and logistics, retention and recruitment of participants, and goal setting and evaluation. It includes a checklist of strategies for conducting similar projects with this population. 2004. (EPR 10). (14 pp).
