Future teachers from Spain did a Practicum in Stockholm

Emma Eriksson Pérez and Alexandra Charapova Kareva, student teachers from the University of the Balearic Islands have been Erasmus exchange students during the Spring Term 2021 at Stockholm University.

During the exchange period, they attended the course Teacher Training Placement for Exchange Students, 7,5 ECTS imparted at the Department of Mathematics and Science Education. The course involves a five-weeks long practicum in Johannes school, a Swedish Primary School with international profile. Emma and Alexandra have the opportunity to work with their supervisors, teach Mathematics, Science and acquire some stimulating experiences for their future studies.

Alexandra:
“I really enjoyed the practicum! I have the opportunity to test and develop so many different teaching strategies and hands-on activities, especially in Mathematics, but also to experience the complexity of the teacher’s job that goes beyond the classroom.”

Emma:
“It has been amazing to experience another teaching tradition and school environment in Sweden. If I have to recall something extraordinary from the practicum, it was the unique  contact that, as a teacher, you can establish with your students, eventhough I spend only a few weeks with them in the school.
