Physical Freedom and Educational Travel

Teacher Insights

A study done by researchers at Management College, Ocean University of China, Qingdao, on the learning effectiveness of educational travel among 560 secondary school students in China, revealed that full physical freedom effectively improved learning satisfaction. The combination of learning content with bodily movements made it easier for secondary school students to master what they learned. The multiplicity of sensori stimuli in real learning situations enhances immersion perception, making learners feel relaxed, pleasant, and engaged. Educational travel should stimulate a student's natural instincts of learning, have clear learning objectives, encourage physical participation, have innovative themes and activities.
