I’ve been working with Discover the World’s Education team for a few years now and have run some excellent school trips to Iceland with them too. Their approach is to support teachers with what they do in the classroom with free resources and CPD training events. It’s therefore great that Dan and the team are giving up their offices for a TeachMeet event in Surrey on the 27th February 2013. It’s also a great honour (and also more a little scary) that they’ve asked me to give a ‘keynote’ talk at the event.
The theme is ‘Discover Outside the Classroom.’ Dan’s plan is to share ideas for using the school grounds for a wide variety of subjects, from Science experiments in the hall ways, mathematical explorations of the school site or geographical shelter building. No need to think large scale in terms of overseas or grand field trips – simple and effective ideas are usually best! Everyone is welcome so I hope to see you there!
