ENRICH YOUR TEACHING PROCESS WITH INDOOR AND OUTDOOR GAMES

Who doesn’t like to play games inside or outside of the classroom? Not only are games fun, interactive, and social, but they’re also great tools for learning.

Classroom games add flair and student engagement to more tedious, yet necessary tasks like teaching math facts, grammar rules and vocabulary, reviewing for tests or even completing lab experiments. Adding an element of competition motivates and energizes students.

Outdoor education occurs, in one form or another, in most if not all countries of the world. However, it can be implemented very differently, depending on the cultural context. Some countries, for example, view outdoor education as synonymous with environmental education, whilst other countries treat outdoor education and environmental education as distinct. Modern forms of outdoor education are most prevalent in UK, US, Australia, New Zealand, Europe and to some extent Asia and Africa.

The UK: The English Outdoor Council, an umbrella body, defines outdoor education as a way for students and teachers to be fully engaged in a lesson, all the while embracing the outdoors. The EOC deems outdoor education as “providing depth to the curriculum and makes an important contribution to students’ physical, personal and social education.” Outdoor education is also encapsulated in Forest School which is widespread in the UK and growing.

Australia & New Zealand: Australia & New Zealand are home to several outdoor education certificate programs. Once teachers have completed their schooling, many have opportunities to work at various outdoor education centers in either country. The Australian outdoor council has developed curriculum documents to ensure schools are partaking in outdoor education throughout the country.

Canada: Environmental education, most notably outdoor education in Canada is seen through outdoor camp and residential programs, school-based programs and commercial travel operations. Outdoor education in Canada is based around “hard” technical skills often travel and camping skills and the “soft” group skills and personal growth qualities are blended with, one might say, the “green” and “warm” skills of a complementary eco-adventure focus”. Adventures are found whether one is partaking in environmental awareness or team-building workshops throughout Canada. Many schools and after-school programs such as The YMCA camps lean towards outdoor education, especially during the summer months.

Denmark: Denmark is known as one of the more environmentally conscious countries in the developed world. One of the ways in which this presents itself, is through the forest school system that exists there. Children are taught in the woods using nature and animals to learn about basic environmental education as well as the fundamental elementary education that is required.
