Nordic4DFrame can organize training workshops for teachers in the use of this exciting
This training can take place at a nearby Science Centre, or at the school where they
teach. In order to best fit the needs of the school and its teachers who will be
using the 4DFrame materials, you have the options of purchasing a 4DFrame Large,
or Regular, activity box by itself, with specialized group instruction given by a
4DFrame-trained teacher, or you can even opt for having separate training after you
have had the opportunity to work with the materials on your own.
Teacher Training Package: 10 teachers, 10 pre-packaged boxes of 4DFrame materials
with 6- 10 hours of hands-on training.
Besides Teacher Training we also encourage classes to visit science centres already
involved with 4DFrame so that students and teachers become familiar with the art,
math and science of using this educational material together.
Evaluations from Teacher Training
Those who have already taken the teacher training class are often very enthusiastic
about what they have experienced. Here are some samples about what they have had
Evaluation/comments from study day with Ingela B, 22 August 2010
"Inspiring and well planned morning. Feels fun and exciting to try this to see how
they might work for our students. Feels like we can make use of this in our theme,
picture and math work. I look forward to continuing. A credit to you both for your
dedication; it's infectious."
"Good to get your own bag of materials. Good and inspiring to try to build yourself.
Has become more interesting now."
"Hard to say what will happen with our students. It's certainly worth a try. Good
to try it out before we begin with the students."
"Good material. Funny, inspiring for our students, practicing their fine motor skills.
Fun to try so ourselves. Think about how we work with a little yellow perhaps? Good
tip with the picture, mix materials with things torn out from magazines. Fun with
"Fun and inspiring. Received many tips and hope we can have contact in the future
so that I can develop myself and work with this material. Thank you for allowing
me to be a part of it."
"It's been a good morning. The material seems very exciting. Too bad there were so
few in our group representing elementary schools, but we'll show it off during the
year! Thank you."
"Fun to try something new! Good materials, many opportunities to develop this further...
Thanks for an inspiring day!"
"Good thing that we got to try all the material before students will work with it.
Good to get information and an overview on how to continue with 4DFrame."
"It's fun and a good material. Something one can use in many different ways and areas
of work. It's great that you can try and get a different feel for the material and
ideas for how to work with your students."
"Great fun! Educational to think in some new ways. One can imagine many different
areas of work."
Evaluation by Alla Ericson, PhD, University Lecturer, Södertörn University
Thanks for these two days that gave us so much!
I've talked to the students and they have only positive experiences from the visit.
Everyone was very supportive of your presentation of the Science Center and Teknorama
as well as the showing off of the museum. Everyone was also the presentation of 4Dframe,
the Korean material. One would like to work more with this Korean materials. Next
time we can take pictures of the students' designs as documentation. The crowns,
towers and space shuttles as well as different patterns were fabulous! It has been
very good not only from the mathematical side, but also to strengthen students' self-confidence
and give them new ideas.
Many would like to try using the material with students at their next student teaching
that has been given wk 17 to wk 21. I hope that the current teacher candidates will
use the material in their future work when it is available. We here at Södertörn
University would like to use it to work on our seminars - practical laboratories.
Please add us to the waiting list.
