groups in search of their own strenghts and Abilities
Well-equipped with maps and GPS, crossing woods and fields, students will be pursuing a common goal
The good old map still exists, despite the advance of satellite-navigated GPS devices. This programme seeks to combine the use of traditional and modern means of orientation. Students will be working together in small groups. After a brief introduction, they will start off in their groups, equipped with maps and a GPS device. The goal of the game is to find the right path (which we have tried out multiple times). During this treasure-hunt-like game, different points along the trail are strived for, which the students need to take photographs of. The students will make it their ambition to find the path quicker than the other teams and to reach the finish line first. Our geo-coaching programme allows group dynamics to develop - experience has shown that teams normally start out in chaos, but soon start to discover the strengths and weaknesses of their members. Loosely thrown up groups turn into successful teams when they start using their abilities efficiently. In the end, the teachers are usually more surprised at their students' achievement than the students themselves.
