The teacher training (Bridge Model) explained

In the busy everyday life of a teacher, quick and targeted support is welcome. A long list of web links offering excellent teaching resources is often not enough and may not be compatible with the actual challenges of linking curricular requirements for pupils and sustainable, desired learning success on the part of the pupils. Added to this is the
difficulty posed by the requirements of interdisciplinary teaching. It is particularly difficult for teachers to locate suitable starting points for their own subject lessons when using a wide variety of educational programmes across subjects. The model for teacher training developed as part of the GEO Academy, the so-called Bridge Model supports teachers
in bridging the gap between curricular requirements on the one hand and expected learning outcomes on the other. In order to create this holistic approach, the Bridge Model for teacher training is not limited to excellent tools and motivating concepts, but supplements these with

  • known comprehension difficulties on the part of the students with regard to the
    concepts to be taught 
  • appropriate routines and practice phases to consolidate what has been learnt 
  • opportunities for embedding rapid feedback loops for fine tuning to a teacher’s
    individual teaching process

These supportive structures relieve the burden on teachers, who in recent years have been increasingly confronted with integrating new and often interdisciplinary content (such as sustainable developments, alternative energy resources or artificial intelligence) into their lessons in addition to their existing teaching tasks.
