Why work with African Insight Academy?
Why go on a school field trip?
“Tell me and I will forget, teach me and I may remember, involve me and I will learn” is the essence of effective educ`ational field trips.
Well-planned and safely-executed field trips can be far more than just a learning experience outside the classroom. They can be a unique life-changing experience, exposing students to a world of opportunities for learning, but also an opportunity for them to learn what they have to offer to others. Field trips are a critical component of a well-balanced education and learning experience of today’s young global citizens and tomorrow’s leaders.
Learning outside the classroom is an active experiential process where students can encounter actual problems and be involved in determining hypotheses and solutions whilst interacting with others. Experiential learning is inherently interdisciplinary, therefore providing an enriched cross-curricular learning experience.
We grow when we are stretched and for many the simple act of leaving behind the comfort of the known is in itself a challenge and an invaluable growth opportunity. Field trips are super-concentrated opportunities for personal growth and learning of life skills. Spending an extended time in a foreign environment with a group of people that are not your family ensures that participants are involved, and when we are involved, we are learning skills without even realising it.
