On a sunny and warm summer day, two members of the emJoy team met up with a small group of enthusiastic people and talked about education, play and the joy of learning and teaching. I am referring to the first emJoy seminar in Athens; it took place on Saturday the 6th of July at the cozy and welcoming space of the bookstore Books & Beans.
All my training took place in an institution, with the goal of implementing what I’ve learned within the four walls of a school. Meanwhile, there has always been this other teacher (nature), ready and waiting, beyond those walls to take on that teaching role and let children learn freely and with joy.
