Baan Maengonkilek Teacher Workshop
Over the Weekend of 24-25 October 2015, Traidhos Camp Program welcomed nearly 40 participants from Baan Maengonkilek school in Fang District, Chiang Mai.
The School had heard that Traidhos Camp uses experiential camp activities and would facilitate programs in English, so they brought staff from across the school, teachers from kindergarden to senior school, and secretaries and principals to see how they might include different learning styles and cross-curricula themes once back in their own school.
Participants entered fully into all aspects of the workshops. They cooperated together with the low ropes and team-building circuits, considered the value of different sorts of questioning, undertook a webbing activity to increase awareness of the inter-relationships of the farm habitat, and enjoyed a lively campfire.
On Sunday, the day began with a creative writing workshop and then a community investigation, called Pieces, Patterns and Processes.
At the closing, teachers reflected positively on their experiences and were enthusiastic about how they might incorporate ideas into their own planning.
