Teacher as Conductor, Voice as Baton


Presenter: Brandt Smith
Target Audience: General Interest
CPD hours: 1.5


Often one of the most underutilized tools in an educator’s toolbox is their voice. Voice has the potential to orchestrate the very climate of the classroom, to bring energy up or down, to inject lightness, and focus the attention of others. Competency with any instrument requires practice, and voice is no different. In this webinar, you’ll practice using your classroom voice more effectively and learn how to use your voice as more than just an instructional tool or management device. 

Learner Outcomes

  • You will gain a better understanding of the impact your voice has on your environment.
  • You will learn how to use your voice effectively.
  • You will acquire ways to use your voice to impact the energy of the children.
