    18. 18. Activity 1.1 Forming teams (Warm up exercises) Length 60 min Objective To get to know the participants in small groups and discuss the importance of the working environment for teachers and students. Participants should be able to appreciate the innovative use of technology to support 21st century skills in the classroom, exemplified by using the iTEC TeamUp tool to form collaborative groups. Description The trainer introduces him/herself and welcomes the participants to the course. The day starts with warm up exercises 1) Tell me who you are and what is the most beautiful place you have ever visited? 2) What would be the best room/space for you to work in as a teacher? First questions in the warm-up exercise lead to a discussion of learning space and the concept of learning space. More specific questions can be: How many schools have you worked in? • Did you get to influence the design of the school? • In how many ways can you use school spaces/premises? • What are the acoustics / lighting / indoor air like in your school? • Which other facilities are available to the students in addition to the classroom? • Do you have enough space for teaching purposes? • What kind of technology is in use in your school and what is it used for? • What is a good space for learning? About 25 min are allowed for the discussion. The results of the discussion will not be summarized. The Team Up tool is used to profile participants and form heterogeneous group so that each group has as many nationalities as possible. (Group size 3-4). Activity content/Guidance note
