Finally! Somebody has given outdoor teaching and experiential learning publicity. For anybody who didn’t see it Gareth Malone has a new program called Extraordinary School for Boys, it is on the BBC. This program highlights the need for boys especially, to not simply be taught in classrooms. Malone takes the boys out of the curriculum for 3 days a week and shows other ways of teaching,  including increasing the boys confidence. I have had this idea for ages and finally someone is giving it some publicity.

  1. I agree, it makes sense that we shouldnt just be sitting inside when learning, we should be in the outdoors learning about whats around us aswell!
