Outdoor Learning Experiences

April 6, 2023

Educational Excursions and field trips for students are organised to reinforce experiential and contextual learning. Field trips enhance their critical thinking skills and gives students a chance to think about a topic or theme from a different perspective.

Pre-visit connection- Students are exposed to a pre-visit video or pictures about the site, which introduces important subject matter, clarify expectations for the visit, vocabulary, tools, or techniques that might help to prepare them for a more fruitful learning experience.

Post-visit reflection- The key to enhancing any trip for a student is the value of talking about it, expressing one’s opinions, listening to others’ points of view and participating in a respectful discussion of the experience. Hands-on activities provide another way for students to share their experiences and learn from others.
