You can lead a brain to the classroom but you can’t make it think.
Each student must be willing and capable of crossing the Line of Opportunity and stepping into the Learning Zone to meaningfully engage in learning. Like any behaviour, it’s always easier when everyone else is doing it too! Reboot helps schools create whole-brain classrooms, a set of success habits in students and a culture of learning that values learning tenacity and education as an opportunity for each individual, not just something that they need to do. Reboot empowers you to create engaged and empowered learning communities.

Reboot gives you the insight and practical tools to create the 3 pillars of engaged learning communities in all educational settings, from early childhood through to university:
- Whole-brain teaching and learning practices in the classroom: Reboot’s neuroscience-based 7-step Framework captures best practice teaching and creates clarity and intentionality in each classroom and throughout your school. Focused on the learning process, discover the optimal conditions for the brain to engage and learn, and re-inspire staff to bring quality connections, psychological safety, engaging pedagogy and joy back into their classrooms. Reboot Straddles the false divide between student attainment, pedagogy and wellbeing and takes the focus from student-centred to a new level of student empowerment. Reboot can be integrated into your existing practices and is easily accessed through on-line and face-to-face training. The 7-Step Framework is accompanied by over 125 classroom strategies and 500+ resources to implement Reboot in your setting. Our planning support enables you to Reboot with 5-15 minutes of allocated staff time per week.

- Foster the habits of success: Meaningful student engagement in learning occurs best when students are self-aware and self-responsible. These are the first critical developmental skills that underpin the positive learning behaviours of self-regulation, healthy relationship practices, problem-solving, metacognition and reflection. Reboot’s simple language and visuals are easily integrated into the everyday language and practices in the classroom to enable the repetitions of social, emotional and learning skills required to translates them into habits. Reboot’s tools encourage people to be more self-aware, self-responsible, grounded, compassionately connected, self-regulated and tenacious, problem-solvers, and innovators seeking to contribute. We see school as an opportunity to develop a learning apprenticeship in the key learning-how-to-learn skills, learning resilience and tenacity to empower young people to consistently interact with knowledge positively in our rapidly changing world.
Importantly these habits work for staff as well as students. Looking to boost the resilience in your team? Recharge and Thrive with us.
- Create a learning culture: Great learning is a sweaty, dirty business full of mistakes! We’ve got to normalise these challenges and the uncomfortable feelings that inevitably arise when we find ourselves wrangling with new concepts and skills. Reboot’s culture creation process gives you the elements to intentionally forge a learning culture among both students and staff that values stepping into the Learning Zone. Our clear culture building strategy identifies the tangible and intangible cultural markers, culture creators and culture keepers that drive this process. Reboot provides a simple common language, tools and visuals that contribute to the building of a culture that empowers active, curious and capable leaners seeking to connect and create.
