Team Building for School: Play and Fun, Building Educators’ Communities

Table of Contents

Description

Your school is the space where you spend a lot of your time. Your colleagues and the staff of your school are part of your life, and as part of a larger family, you are supposed to contribute every day with support and professional programs to provide the best education for the future adults of the world.

Positive school climate, real cohesiveness, teacher collaboration, and motivation have a great impact on student approach to learning and outcomes. Isn’t it true? 

Let’s participate in our Team Building Program for school to experiment with how fun and motivational activities can be inspirational for developing a sense of belonging and an atmosphere of community, tolerance, and team spirit, and for the improvement of communication skills.

Team building activities also create a climate of cooperation and contribute to collaborative problem-solving, develop empathy and trust in the group and in yourself, enhance creativity, and boost self-esteem.

We will spend a few hours in the theoretical aspect of a Team Building program (group psychology, personality development, activity planning), and present a series of fun team building activities in the classroom and around the city; no particular skills are required to participate.

By the end of the course, you will learn the positive power of Team Building activities, and will be ready to re-use and adjust the exercises at school.

  • Learn the positive power of team-building activities and feel more confident and ready to re-use and adjust the practiced exercises at your own school;
