In this 5 day Erasmus+ Training for Teachers in beautiful Tenerife, we will unleash our creative brain through a variety of activities. Let’s explore together the art of words, drama, painting, dancing & moving and the art of making things. 

This course aims at providing the necessary tools for students and teachers to spark their creativity and color their daily practice. 

By encouraging everyone’s imagination, curiosity, engagement, and fun, a warm atmosphere will be created at school where every participant will feel inspired to thrive. We will spark teachers’ individuality and originality by exploring together a variety of up-to-date inspirational techniques to develop strategic lesson plans. In this course, we will cover all the stages involved in teaching, including 

✓ class management

✓ preparation and delivery

✓ assessing

✓ school organization, and 

✓ communication with parents. 

Through different activities, we will learn how peers relate and interact in order to improve their relationships. Additionally, we will provide multiple resources to construct a gamified practice that will generate a school full of attention, acceptance, appreciation, and affection, a school that embraces and allows every person to express their true self. The goal is to make our classrooms even more enjoyable, stimulating and engaging by playing around, researching and assessing our own roles. The focus will also be on how to deliver learning and how to measure results. This course will provide you with novel and useful ways to promote student growth through the development of original thought and action. 

Is your life lacking in creativity?

It’s no wonder! In fact, tapping into your creative energy can actually improve your health. It might sound too good to be true, but simply engaging in creative behaviors, such as painting, potting plants or cooking new recipes, improves brain function and mental health. 

The essential elements of creation are inspiration and imagination. We will explore our unconscious beliefs about our own creativity in order to break through them. As a result, our homes, schools, and workplaces will be filled with colourful ideas.
