As teachers, we can be over the moon when we are told by observers that our children are 'engaged'. But what if we saw 'engagement' as simply an articulation of manners, rather than learning?

In this new webinar, Debra Kidd and Hywel Roberts, will share with you their tried and tested strategies when it comes to hooking children into their learning so that they move beyond simple polite engagement, into the realms of 'investment'.

As always with Hywel and Debra, practical examples, fresh-from-the-classroom stories, cutting-edge research, humour, passion and a warm welcome are guaranteed.

Key Takeaways:

  • An awareness of the research around engagement and investment
  • A practical and adaptable toolkit of approaches that support student investment
  • An understanding of the importance of hooks and lures to learning to begin sessions and energise students
  • The power of great teacher talk to encourage contributions
  • Many quick wins to try in the classroom the next day

This session is suitable for all teachers and leaders at both primary and secondary level including EYFS and SEND specialists.

*If you can't make that date, let us know via and you can buy the full recording which we will send to you after the event for your personal use.

Finally, because the 'one milkshake, six straws' approach is not cool, please e-mail us if you want to use this for staff training and need to purchase more than one ticket. We'll do you a deal that makes sure everyone is happy. Thanks.
