作为教育工作者,我们每天都在观察学生如何努力工作以取得好成绩。然而,我们仍然惊讶于他们学习的速度,获得新的技能,以及应用他们所获得的知识的速度!

Nowadays, education is undergoing some important changes, leaving passive teaching methods, based on dry theory, behind. In a global society that continually moves forward, education must also be redefined. Many new approaches to teaching and learning have appeared over the years, and some of them have proved to be very efficient and productive.

These new methods challenge the traditional concepts of teaching and learning that most of us have. One of these innovative approaches is Forest School and outdoor learning.

奥拉亚-加西亚是一个 WISS 幼儿园前的老师,通过为幼儿园前的学生开展森林学校活动,将这种方法引入我们学校。用奥拉亚的话说。 “Exploring in the outdoors, children build their gross and fine motor skills. They develop movement control, flexibility, balancing skills, and keep fit and healthy.”

户外活动有哪些好处?

儿童与其他儿童和成人形成积极的关系

户外教育方法提倡团队合作、分享和轮流活动。它支持儿童与他人互动,进行协商,并进行合作性游戏。

学生开始发展个人价值观

As Olaya notices every week, in Forest School, children find their own learning interests as well as raise their self-confidence and sense of achievement. Important values such as empathy are practiced through peer collaboration.

Children connect to themselves and the environment

用加西亚女士的话说,户外教育鼓励好奇心和对自然的热爱。它认识到儿童通过与自然环境的联系找到自己身份的重要性。在森林学校,孩子们被鼓励欣赏自然之美,尊重动植物。参加户外活动的儿童会产生 "感觉良好 "的荷尔蒙,帮助他们释放压力,感觉更轻松。

儿童推动他们的学习过程

When children are given the freedom to lead their own inquiries outdoors, they are more likely to be engaged and to show enthusiasm about learning and discovering. They rely on their resilience, problem-solving, and critical thinking to solve the challenges they set for themselves. In this way, students are in control of their own learning.

孩子们发展生活技能,变得更有创造力和好奇心

大自然充满了能激发儿童好奇心的感官信息。在户外学习提供了真实生活和实践经验的机会,孩子们通过用各种感官进行探索来发展他们的创造力。自然界的开放性材料可以支持他们的象征性游戏;例如,一根棍子可以是一根魔杖或一匹棍马。

Promoting outdoor learning activities is a fantastic way to encourage students to learn, to acquire new skills and knowledge, to explore and to be in contact with the natural environment, and to feel more confident.
