On Tuesday we were visiting a primary school in eastern Munich to get some answers to our interview questions and to get an idea of their day-to-day routine.
The day began early at 7:15 am in the teachers’ room which means for most of the teachers waiting in line to get copies from the only copier. Then at 8 am it was time for some math in second grade, which was amusing to observe.
During the day we could thankfully borrow some of the teachers‘ free time for some interrogation. We interviewed 3 teachers individually and 2 together, which turned out to be a pretty good idea.
In the afternoon a part of the group had the chance to take part in an e-training for teachers at a school computer, which was in fact a two-hour tutorial about how to use a new website for teaching materials and other tools. The school computer’s FlashPlayer was so old-school that the live broadcasted video lecture had to be restarted only every 5 minutes since the system admin didn’t allow to bring the system up to date.
