This is the eighth of eight posts where I discuss some of the things that I talked about at the 2010 Learning and Teaching Scotland Outdoor Learning Regional Events
One of the parts of the 2010 Learning and Teaching Scotland Outdoor Learning Regional Events was to let delegates have an opportunity to read over the relatively new Curriculum for Excellence Through Outdoor Learning Document. I personally think that this is one of the best Curriculum for Excellence documents that has been produced so far.
The core values of Curriculum for Excellence echo the key concepts of outdoor learning: challenge, enjoyment, relevance, depth, development of the whole person and an adventurous approach to learning.
Such experiences inspire passion, motivating our children and young people to become successful learners and to develop as healthy, confident, enterprising and responsible citizens.
During the Outdoor Learning Regional Events delegates were also shown the new Learning and Teaching Scotland Outdoor learning Web Pages. The LTS Online service is about to get a bit of a facelift but much of the outdoor learning content will remain the same.
There is also a great section on Risk Assessment as well as lots of great outdoor learning case studies in the support for staff area.
