Limited Capacity full
Adding this to your schedule will put you on the waitlist.

"We know the why, what's the how?" Participants will get a primer on, participate in, and take a few minutes to work together on their own prototype of highly participatory, stimulating, ecological learning activities that can be conducted in a traditional schoolyard.
Looking at the equipment, props and resources from the Calgary Board of Education's Outdoor Classroom 2.0 pilot program, we will address the the complexities and roadblocks that restrict students and school staff from leaving school property and cosider if the ethos of forest school can genuinely live in a schoolyard. This session focuses on mobile equipment and pedagogy necessary to create activities to make schoolyards come alive during the school day in any weather or season.

Max Capacity: 20
