Cleverbean is an Australian K-6 lesson planning solution that enables the teaching of complex literacy skills with unbeatable teacher confidence - so you can worry less about leveling out teacher capabilities and focus more on the metrics that show where students require more support.
Megan contacted us after her school had recently invested in a three-year school-wide professional development program to enhance Visible Learning and teacher capability across the school. Given teacher capability is one of her most important goals, she needed to find practical ways for her staff to to continue practising and deepening their capability in these effective classroom practices. Megan loves how Cleverbean supports their existing professional development efforts. Her teachers are showing they have more confidence and are feeling more empowered to improve their practice.
Penny, a teacher from Brisbane, was challenged with a group of students who literally would not write anything. She reached out to us in excitement and disbelief. After using one of our narrative units of work, these students began to interact, discuss, and write, fully engaged and proud of their creations. Penny credits the lesson's creativity for sparking their interest and the explicit instruction for helping her set them up for success and gradually transition them to independent work.

Our team of teachers, creatives and technologists have two goals; to improve the progress and joy of learning in students, and to empower teachers to do their best work in the classroom. Students and teachers will both be developing their intricate knowledge of skills as they move towards mastery.
Lucy and Alina founded Cleverbean in 2019 when Lucy was fed up with the quality of support teachers were given for the classroom practice. Get to know Lucy and Alina more below!

From very early in her career when struggling to engage students in their learning, she went on a quest to find the key principles that led to increased engagement, positive classroom behaviours and learning outcomes for every style of student, with any learning disability.
Lucy developed a blue print of lesson mastery for learning mastery, practicing this within her own classrooms, her peers classrooms and her graduates classrooms to refine her work which has become Cleverbean.
explores complex problems and designs experiences that delicately weave meaningful technology into real-life environments. After dedicating her career to doing this with some of Australia’s most recognised brands such as Qantas, Temple & Webster, and Sydney Opera House, she chose to redirect her skills to her area of passion, in education.
She found that teachers were limited by the tools on offer, many providing conflicting experiences that left them feeling redundant from the learning experience. Others while helpful, still required a lot of adaptation to meet basic needs.
She wants to create a paradigm shift in education, where we hero and empower the teacher as the most important asset in the classroom.
