The Arkki teacher’s role is to be a facilitator, guiding pupils through carefully designed learning paths. The teacher is crucial in creating a warm and secure atmosphere, inside which the children feel confident to experiment and also to take creative risks.
In Arkki the teacher’s role is not traditional – In Arkki the teacher joins the pupils on their personal learning journeys, supports their individual research and experimentation, and guides them forward – for example, with discussion and question-making. The different phenomena are approached through inspiring pictures, discussions, planning, designing, drawing, writing, modeling, constructing etc. – individually and in groups.
