BBC News: Outdoor learning ‘boosts children’s development’

July 18, 2016

"At the moment, if outdoor learning is part of a school's curriculum in England, it is largely because the teachers recognise the value of it," said report co-author, Sue Waite, a reader in outdoor learning at Plymouth University, UK.

​A report has recently been published which outlines the benefits of outdoor learning and how establishing an ‘outdoor learning hub’ would help teachers, and help shape policies and strategy in UK education. The report also proposed a ‘Framework for 21st Century Student Outcomes’ that could be delivered through regular lessons in natural environments. Click here to read the article on BBC News.

Juliet Robertson is a prominent flag-bearer within teaching circles in championing the benefits of outdoor learning in schools nationwide and has written a book exclusively on that subject which offers a multitude of activities, lessons, and ideas for teaching pupils outside of the classroom.
