The main topic of the meeting was outdoor learning.

The theory was nicely combined with practice outdoors and participants got over 10 useful practical tools to use for their classes to create the lessons outdoors.

The meeting got positive feedback from the participants. The general evaluation was 4 out of 5. There were higher expectations towards the geocaching and the experts delivering this topic as the participants didn’t see the close link to their subjects. But the new ideas were got from the partner sharing and other seminars. Most of the participants felt motivated after the meeting to implement the gained ideas and tools in their lessons such as Seesaw, huntzz, loquiz, runkeeper, QR code reader.
