How We Connect






Connect with your learning community
Engage in learning
Inspire family-school partnerships for sustainability

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 and the philosophy of global design thinking organisation, IDEO.

Practically Learning aims to assist schools to avoid difficult relationships with parents by providing the tools to create positive relationships and improve communication between parents, educators, and school leaders.

The greatest advantage in developing positive relationships is for children to feel supported by all those around them and to embrace a love of learning to achieve their greatest potential.

We use Design Thinking and proven research to guide and mentor educational leaders, teachers and parents through our fun and interactive workshops. We help you to plan and develop creative and relevant strategies for connecting with parents, engaging parents in learning and exploring how you can sustain practices and achieve results for your teachers and students.

We achieve this through:

Research and strategic planning

Workshops and presentations in schools and education 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


Research and Resources

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.
