Teacher Training in Germany

In the last week of November our Run-Jump-Learn-project had a teacher training at Kleeblattschule in Germany. The overarching question of the training was „Why go outside?“

Our focus lay on outdoor teaching and integrating outdoor activities into everyday teaching. With the help of an outdoor specialist, we explored perception exercises and tested various new games that can be played on playgrounds, in gardens or in forests. Rangers from our local nature and wildlife park provided insight into how schools can integrate excursions to discover flora and fauna in the woods into the school’s curriculum.

Another part of the teacher training were lesson observations at Kleeblattschule, in order to get a concrete insight into the German school system. In addition, the guests taught German pupils dances, games or how to count in another language. The pupils really enjoyed that part and were highly motivated to learn more.

In the afternoon we tested ways of combining ICT and outdoor learning when doing interactive tasks using iPads in the school area.

One day was spared to visit the Studienseminar Kassel, where teachers are trained after their first state examination. This part of the German teacher training was new to our guests from Finland, Sweden, Wales, and Spain. In the evening we enjoyed visits to traditional Christmas markets and spend the evening together talking about the past days full of impressions.
