How We Connect

Connect - Engage - Inspire

Creating positive learning environments for children to thrive – both at school and home.

Practically Learning is at the forefront of culture change in educational communities.
We strive to bridge the gap between school and home through assisting schools and parents in understanding and developing parent engagement in education to achieve genuine family-school partnerships.

Our work draws on research, both locally and internationally, using elements of the Dual Capacity Framework and the work of several renowned researchers we have met and learned from personally, including Dr. Karen Mapp, Dr Debbie Pushor, Dr Joni Samples, Maggie Farrar along with Dr Joyce Epstein, Alma Harris and Anne Henderson.

Practically Learning aims to assist schools in creating positive relationships between parents, educators, and school leaders so that children feel supported to embrace a love of learning and achieve to the best of their abilities.

We use Design Thinking and proven research to guide and mentor educational leaders, teachers and parents to plan and develop creative and relevant strategies for parent engagement.

We achieve this through:

Culture development research and strategic planning

Workshops and presentations in schools and conferences

Coaching and mentoring teachers and leadership teams

Parent Engagement Action Team Mentor Program

Consulting on specific strategies and ideas for parent engagement in learning

Books

Our work inspires people in all stages of education and parenthood to create stronger connections with each other so that they are better equipped and empowered to support children throughout their learning journey.
