OBLOMOV for Schools
This section is for teachers who would like to try the OBLOMOV method.
“Preteens’ level of enjoyment is a strong predictor of their constant participation in physical activity” (Lambrick et al. 2015).
Why does the Oblomov method can be considered innovative? It can be described with the word SHIEFTS: Short High Intensity Enjoyable Flexible Time-efficient Shared. It is a pedagogic method based on the HIIT (High Intensive Interval Training) approach and combining theatre strategies to involve pupils.
Actually, the Oblomov team tried to create a new pedagogic method combining both HIIT and THEATRE: sport, with discipline, rules, and movement meets a story, made by imagination and magic, with the aim of transforming current reality to a better one.
Why Theatre has been combined with Sport? Beacause THEATRE is used as a “motivating tool”, that is able to involve teenagers in physical activities and to promote the idea that physical exercise can be funny.
Here you can find downloadable resources to understand the OBLOMOV method through our experiences!
