Power of kinestethic learning
Start date: Jun 1, 2015,
End date: Nov 30, 2015
From our and our partners' experience, kinesthetic learning is often one of the most neglected ways of learning both in formal as well as in non-formal learning settings, but it has to be taken into account that kinesthetic learning has a lot of potential and power in it, because it is usually opening new "channels" and “connections” in people, generating new emotions, helping them to become more open, self-aware and creative and to realize their full potential through holistic learning. The quality of working with young people that we do could increase a lot if the people who provide non-formal learning activities and develop different competencies for youth would be more skilled in using bodily learning. Therefore, we organize this training course in order to gather people that work with young people so that they experience it on themselves - what it means, the power of kinesthetic and so that they can later on include more elements of it in their work with youth - thus improving the quality of youth work.
The training course will take place in Slovenj Gradec, Slovenia from 19-th until 27-th of September 2015. The country involved in this project would be Slovenia, Latvia, Italy, Poland, Czech Republic, Greece, France, Estonia and Croatia. The training course would include many practical exercises and will be based on Experiential Learning approach, giving the chance for the participants not only to experience the power of kinesthetic learning, but also to understand it and develop concrete ideas and skills to apply it in their reality - work with young people. Improved, more exciting powerful youth work that is able to support young people's learning would be a long term benefit.
