Es ging im Schwerpunkt um Möglichkeiten des digitalen Lernens im Kontext des inklusiven Unterrichts. Vorgestellt und erarbeitet wurden Plattformen, Apps etc., die in heterogenen Lerngruppen hilfreich sind und auf ein verbessertes Miteinander im Klassenverband zielen. Die Chancenggleichheit war hier ebenfalls eines der wichtigsten Ziele.

Grundstruktur des Kurses war das 'PERMA-Modell'. Das Modell stammt aus dem Fachgebiet der ‚Positive Psychology‘, maßgeblich entwickelt vom amerik. Psychologen Martin Seligman in den späten 1990er Jahren. Es wurde täglich etwa ein Aspekt aus dem Modell erarbeitet. Das Modell war somit Strukturgeber der Veranstaltung. Im Kern ging es darum positive Emotionen ins Zentrum des Lehrkräftehandelns zu stellen. Der Kursleitung ist es gelungen, durch Erzeugung eines freundlichen, offenen und respektvollen Betriebsklimas im Kurs durch untersch. Methoden (Kennlernspiele etc.) und anschließender Übertrag auf das schulische Arbeitsfeld, den Ansatz auch in der Kursgestaltung selbst zu praktizieren. Weiterer Schwerpunkt im Kurs war Digitalisierung. Hier konnten insbesondere im Bereich 'Gamification im Unterricht' instruktive und praxisnahe Hinweise gegeben werden.

Sehr freundliche Kursleitung, die strukturiert und individuell auf den Kurs abgestimmtes Themenwünsche bearbeitet. Wertschätzend, Unterrichtsnähe und vor allem Praktikabilität standen sehr gut im Focus und haben meine Arbeit an der Schule verbessert und erleichtert. Organisatorisch sehr gut ausgewogene Fortbildung zwischen theoretischen, praktischen und individuellen Wünschen der Teilnehmer sowie ausreichend Zeit zum Austausch über Schwierigkeiten und Unterschiede innerhalb der verschiedenen teilnehmenden Personen/Ländern. Sehr gerne wieder! Eine meiner besten Fortbildungen!
