We’re back in Berlin!
It’s been one week since our workshop at WELS, in Switzerland, and we are still smiling with joy and excitement. For three days, we have been surrounded by researchers, school leaders, NGO representatives, and teachers; everyone there was determined to work hard to improve the system and take ownership for the way our children grow. It was rewarding and reassuring to see hundreds of people from all over the world willing to help school children become better humans in a better world.
As planned, we brought our playful contribution to the WELS symposium. We had amazing people participating in our workshop, both school-system insiders and outsiders, people with an open mind, who are trying to bring innovation to schools. We believe that our “ludic learning approach”, inspired by Karen Schrier was very well received, especially after people got to actually play the game. In all honesty, everyone was very excited to play the game! Such a pity, we only had 90 minutes!
It is always so nice to see grownups excited about children's games, sometimes even more excited than the children themselves. And that's exactly what we need in class: teachers with great contagious enthusiasm.
A warm thank you to the organizers of WELS, to our workshop participants and to you, for traveling to Switzerland through this blogpost!
