The benefits of learning outdoors have been promoted since Henry David Thoreau took his students on the first Field Trips!
Here is an update on Learning Outdoors — From the TCEA Blog:
Dr. Gary Stager and school architect and designer Prakash Nair have written an excellent guide to providing outdoor learning experiences for students of all ages. This guide is normally sold on Amazon, but is provided free for download here at this link. This guide is presented from the perspective of educators, architects, neurologists, and environmental scientists.
An excellent opportunity to learn during a live Twitter chat and Google Meet… Thank you David Lockett!!

“A crucial indicator of educators’ potential for success is teacher beliefs specifically here, the degree to which you believe you can be successful to the task at hand (self-efficacy).” ~ Design Ed: Connecting Learning Science Research to Practice (2019) by Angela Elkordy, Ayn Keneman

This week’s ed. quote is a nod to the Digital Immigrant Pioneers of the past
“In an inquiry learning environment we never want to suggest that all that can be said on a topic has been said. And learners need to be able to return to old forums to re-read and decide for themselves what it all meant. So we leave one session’s discussions behind to focus on new ones, but old ones are never really closed in the very brief courses we facilitate.” ~Marsha West, PBS TeacherLine pioneer, 2005
