Numberland Teacher Training
Designed to let the good things happen – beyond number sense
As much as my heart beats for Let’s visit Numberland, I want to support YOU in your so important, relevant, and yet also most challenging tasks: Ensuring vital core maths understanding, yet also language, and all other things children need for a good development. Often despite their socio-economic background.
My trainings are designed 100% from the perspective of teachers, looking not only at your maths curriculum, but at your overall situation, requirements, and needs. Just as the Numberland concept itself is designed from children’s perspectives, looking at the entire child.
It is my joy to receive teacher feedback from around the world on how easily this can be accomplished with Numberland and my trainings.
And how Numberland is not something on top or instead of programmes/ schemes you follow. But a true supplement and facilitator, often opening doors and paving the way for other more specifically maths-focused programmes!
What you get in my Numberland trainings
In all my training formats, I provide you with background information and ideas as a rich buffet for you to choose from. You can apply this knowledge not only to Numberland but may find it helpful for other topics too.
▶ Get the full picture of relevant early maths: What number sense truly comprises
▶ The theory and thinking behind Numberland.
▶ How Numberland interweaves neuroscience and developmental psychology with maths didactics
▶ Get to know all Numberland elements in detail: how they look like and in what different ways they transport important mathematical content
▶ Suggestions on how to use and play with them
▶ Creative solutions for the materials (from pragmatic to fancy, from self-made to ready-made)
▶ Proven suggestions on how to embark on your Numberland trip, especially how to start. For different needs: 3 to 5 year-olds, special needs, second language
▶ Examples galore from all over the world, collected since 2004!

I am planning this training to be ready for you by June 2021 🙂
The English version follows my first course in German, which has become an encouraging success.

While my self-instruction course and another free webinar are in the making, I invite you to watch my video of a free webinar (45 min.), held Nov. 2020.
It’s a mini Numberland training, only not as specific as the self-instruction course will be. But might already be enough for you to embark on a fun trip to Numberland! Definite worth a try…
You can schedule an on-site training anytime, anywhere in the world!
Please get in touch with me or contact someone on my international contact list in a country relevant to you. We can discuss what you may need and work something out. Or if you just have a question.
The incredible people there are dedicated, independent teachers who share the Numberland spirit and want to contribute to spreading the word.
I love to travel myself and can’t believe to how many exciting places on different contents Numberland has brought me in the past! It has always been an absolute pleasure to meet open-minded, dedicated teachers and absolutely-not-shy-but-approachable children.
