Step by step roadshow in spring 2016
The event offers the opportunity to participate in workshops where participants can get an insight into the Step by Step programme. On 21 March 2016, the Kiskőrös EGYMI - Step by Step Methodology Centre - hosted the workshop day.
At the workshop, teachers from the Kiskőrös EGYMI, using the Step by Step methodology, provided up-to-date pedagogical responses to the following challenges:
- the integration of pupils with special educational needs,
- addressing various learning difficulties,
- the possibilities of individual treatment and differentiation,
- the successful education of disadvantaged children,
- increasing and maintaining motivation to learn,
- difficulties with discipline and behaviour,
- the practical application of modern learning organisation methods, procedures and methods,
- the evaluation procedures and methods.
The professional day started with demonstration sessions in the kindergarten and with demonstration lessons in the school, both in the lower and upper grades.
This was followed by an informal discussion and lunch, then Mari Zágon, the professional leader of the Step by Step programme, held an interactive workshop, where the guests could not only observe but also actively participate in the elements of the programme. The idea behind the sessions is to organise tasks around children's interests, and learning often takes place through active action. The teacher's personalised, encouraging feedback helps children to feel motivated to try the tasks again and again, and to choose for themselves what they want to improve at.
More than seventy people took part in the event: kindergarten teachers, teachers, teachers, developmental teachers, special education teachers - from 13 municipalities and 19 institutions across the country. Forums like this are rare but all the more useful, where professionals from different levels of education can meet, build relationships and learn from each other. It was a real professional workshop!
"I've seen a lot of different programmes, but this is where I really felt that they really organise the activities around children. What's surprising is how well they can get on and work together and, importantly, that the adults enjoy it too. It was a very fulfilling day. I look forward to having the opportunity to attend LL training myself!"
