The FPPL poster may be on your classroom wall, but does it follow you outside? The workshop proposes to look at the work to do to start moving towards going beyond the ‘FPPL poster on the classroom wall’ by exploring the notion purposefulness. The idea of community is a profound aspect to bring forward when on the land. As a means to convey this idea, examples are used to highlight ways to connect the FPPL to outdoor projects, and projects taking place outdoors. The workshop offers an experiential approach where participants will leave with sample projects that can easily relate to their own school/local community outdoors, and try out an online teaching resource to bring the outdoors in sometimes! Through relevant examples, become more resourceful and purposeful with embedding the FPPL into your teaching. It's all about being much more mindful of our teaching approach when being with nature.
