Course Description

PLEASE NOTE: this course is only about off-line games!!

This course takes inspiration from observations, discussions and polls that have been conducted throughout our teacher training courses in the last three years with teachers from all around Europe and beyond. When asked, most teachers show small satisfaction with play time and down time, both in the quality and the quantity.

Play time is the time we spend in new activities where we can experiment with a new part of ourselves, empower cognitive and social skills, and have fun. Down time is the time we use to do “nothing” …. Or better said, to actually recharge our batteries and to be ready for upcoming challenges and tasks!

Play time and down time can offer a sense of engagement and pleasure, allowing then people to feel spontaneous and energetic, and empower their problem solving and resilience skills. Also, providing our mind with these time dimensions can speed up learning, enhance productivity, cooperation and job satisfaction.

School-life balance is not an utopía, if we put our body, our heart and our mind into something which is natural for small children and slowly abandoned as we grow up: having fun and rest, reconnecting with our spontaneous inner child, which still is available and ready to play and rest if we only give it a chance.

The course is dedicated to teachers, school staff and school managers which work with students of all ages, since play and down time are accessible at any age.

Arts and Wellbeing: By practicing innovative techniques that involve art, psychology, and therapy, the participants in our courses of arts and wellbeing will develop their skills in self-expression and stress management. Thanks to creative activities, mindfulness and yoga, educators will learn how to be more relaxed at school and how to promote alternative forms of communication with their students.)

Creativity and Soft Skills: By fostering critical thinking and communicative abilities, an educator can develop better relationships with students, colleagues, and students’ parents, thus obtaining higher learning outcomes. If you want to expand both your creative thinking and storytelling skills, you should check out our Creativity and Soft Skills courses. They can help you design stimulating activities which aim to promote entrepreneurship and collaboration among your students.
