Outdoor Learning 101: Taking your Young Learners on a Journey – INTERACTIVE OUTDOOR TEACHER TRAINING

Hello, my dear educators! Have you ever taken your young learners outside? Are you ready for some outdoor learning teacher training? Does outdoor learning frighten you and make you feel like it would never work in your classroom? If the answers to these questions are YES, then you are in the right place!

Abstract

In this 1-hour online training, we will explore the concept of outdoor learning in language teaching while also discussing many aspects of outdoor learning such as:

  1. Pedagogical approaches to outdoor learning;
  2. Safety measures;
  3. Activities that can be adapted for every environment.

We will also see successful examples of outdoor learning LIVE! We will then share some tips on how to take students outside for the first time. To conclude the workshop, we will take one outdoor activity and give the participants some time to adapt it to their closest community. Finally, we will collect those activities, and they will be shared so that everyone can see and reuse that one activity in different environments.

After this interactive presentation the participants will be able to:

  1. Understand the various pedagogical approaches to outdoor learning;
  2. Apply the method to develop their own activities;
  3. Adapt an outdoor activity to their closest community/climate;
  4. Understand the basic safety measures;
  5. Observe some outdoor activities live;
  6. Learn how to be a moderator and an observer in an outdoor lesson.

The presentation will have a very young guest! You will be able to see some outdoor games and activities LIVE!

A very curious young learner will join our workshop! This guest will have some fun and explore the surroundings and follow my activities as we talk!
