About this course

Nothing happens without rapport, it is one of the most powerful skills a teacher can have in their toolbox. By the time the kids sit down in your class, they have already made a judgement about you based on: your clothes, how you stand, how you speak to them, your body language, whether or not you smile and the tone of your voice.
Let’s be honest, you don’t have all year to do this so this course is specifically designed with that in mind.
Want to have them eating out of the palm of your hand? Build rapport.
In this course, you will find 12 strategies that you can immediately implement to build rapport so that the best possible educational outcome is possible for your students while all involved actually enjoy the lessons!
Links within the course will take you to further reading, examples, activities and videos that will help you be a rapport master.

  • Expand your knowledge of the Interactive Whiteboard (IWB)
  • Learn amazing activities that are easy to setup and execute

“Great course! It was a good reminder of the ways we impact the children in our care and how what we do affects how they respond. Some good articles and I particularly enjoyed the 2 TED talks”

I develop and facilitate workshops that focus on engagement, movement, and technology. I'm passionate about helping teachers develop strategies to implement, which in their design, minimise behavior management issues in the classroom.
As educators, it's our job to ignite the passion for learning, to help pique curiosities and encourage our students to explore new possibilities and just have a go!

Students appreciate it when we step outside of the mundane and in doing so, we exponentially increase their ability to be able to access the information. If we make it interesting, relevant and heaven forbid, fun, then learning easily follows.
