Reboot’s 16 core tools are learner-led transformational social and emotional learning tools. Bright visuals illustrate clear processes accompanied by guiding questions that take the emphasis off adult-driven conversation and narrative.

Reboot helps build awareness, responsibility, and coach everyone to identify their needs, Next Steps and own their choices. It’s so exciting to see young people coach their peers, siblings and even parents and teachers over Speedbumps and Roadblocks.

Social and emotional learning has been clearly identified to significantly enhance social and emotional skills, attitudes, behaviour, and academic performance (Durlac et. al, 2011; Frey, Fisher & Smith, 2019).
Rather than a simple lesson a week, Reboot tools are also used daily for check-ins, problem-solving, managing relationships, building metacognition and understanding of learning, providing feedback, managing tricky emotions and adapting to challenges.
This act of repetition based on choices and actions rather than simple understanding and knowledge leads to real attitude and behaviour change.

Reboot also recognises the extraordinary importance in our rapidly changing world of learning how-to-learn skills and learning power (Claxton, 2002; Crick, 2007). Our young people need to be agile, self-directed, critical and reflective, focused, collaborative and innovative learners.

Reboot tools break down the learning process and help provide metacognitive clarity on where you are at in your learning journey and what is needed next to persist and succeed. With greater self-awareness, responsibility and concrete problem-solving skills Reboot fosters agency and courage.
