What are the Latest Trends in Education?
A few weeks back, a playmeo member asked me what I knew about current educational trends. That is a great question, I thought. I had…
Experiential learning is a methodology, not a subject, so when I see it applied across a school’s curriculum, I get particularly excited.
That is to say, experiential learning is not the domain of the “outdoor educator” or camp leader alone. It is a way of learning, and thus it can be applied to ALL areas of the curriculum including literacy, numeracy, the arts, sciences, health & physical education, etc, etc.
Some weeks ago, I was engaged by a playmeo member to workshop a bunch of ways in which many of the interactive group games & activities we all use to break the ice, energise and build trust in our groups, and adapt them to an environmental or sustainable theme.
It’s not possible to search for this theme (yet) within our powerful activity search engine, so it was necessary to sit down and wonder out loud about how this could be done and what it would look like.
In less than 30 minutes, we created more than 20 fun and exciting ways to enhance this member’s environmental program with group games & activities all imbued with powerful environmental lessons.
Here’s a truncated list of the sorts of ideas we discussed. Please reach out to me if you’d like the deeper details:
Maybe environmental education is not your thing, fair enough.
But I bet you have a program that would benefit from the integration of a variety of interactive group games & activities, adapted to your specific program needs.
Not only would these activities be fun and help your group connect with one another, they would also raise engagement levels with your content and heighten the learning outcomes of your particular curriculum.
