What is STPM?

Smart Teachers Play More is an innovative course with well-being, play & creativity at its core. Kristín Einarsdóttir from Iceland and Sarah Jane Anthony from England met in Alicante, Spain where they were both working on their separate projects. By combining their programmes and methodology, they have created a truly exciting and practical course which focuses on learning, developing confidence and creativity through play, movement and the senses:

“Smart Teachers Play More reflects our philosophy that teachers learn while having fun, sharing ideas and experiences with colleagues from different countries. It is a truly unique, enriching educational course set in a wonderfully inspiring setting.”

Course aims:

• To introduce the ideology behind STPM project and give real examples of how the projects behind STPM are working in Spanish and Icelandic schools.
• To give teachers first-hand experience and the tools they need to teach academic subjects through play, movement and the senses.
• To give teachers the opportunity to share successful play based activities they use in their own school/country so we can learn from each other.
• To explore how parents and the local community can be involved in their children’s education through games, movement and the senses in a fun and educational way.
• To help teachers plan the vision for their “Play More” school with time to reflect on their individual schools and plan realistic steps for implementation and success.
• To have fun, share experiences and learn from like-minded teachers from different countries.
• To create a meaningful and long lasting support network with teachers and schools all over Europe.
