Sense and experience

Sense and experience

Pick a topic and then choose a learning activity that immerses students in a new environment.

The chosen subject can be small enough to cover in one lesson or large enough to spend three weeks working on. It’s good to start small. Lessons about science and nature are a great place to begin. Take a look at the Case Story for inspiration!

The related learning activity could be anything that breaks from students' usual learning patterns, such as visiting a museum, watching a film or going to a park. Learners are typically trained to be receptive to receiving information in certain settings, through certain kinds of interactions. This activity needs to position the students so that they can use all their senses and their whole bodies to learn, disrupting their usual role as receivers of knowledge. The teacher’s role is to guide the learners and to experience and explore along with them.
