Video about Forest School in Canada
WorkCabin Creative has completed filming and production of a new video for Nature’s Calling Forest School in Norfolk County, Ontario. This latest video is a bit longer than previous videos and is designed to give a more in-depth feel for what a day at forest school is like. Instead of relying only on voiceovers, this video relies more on authentic conversations and interactions as they happen between students and educators.
Picture this: children running through the woods, climbing trees, and getting their hands dirty in the mud. No, it’s not chaos, it’s a forest school! Forest schools are a special type of outdoor learning program that takes place in natural environments, such as forests or woodlands. These schools prioritize hands-on experiences, play, and exploration, all while fostering a deep connection with nature.
Forest schools may seem like a trendy new concept, but they actually have roots that date back to the early 19th century in Scandinavia. The philosophy behind forest schools is deeply influenced by the work of Friedrich Fröbel, an educator who believed in the importance of allowing children to learn through self-directed play in natural surroundings.
The core philosophy of forest schools emphasizes the belief that children are best able to develop their skills and knowledge when they are given the freedom to explore and engage with their environment. By providing a nurturing and noncompetitive atmosphere, forest schools encourage holistic development and a love for learning.
