Visual experience captures the memory for a long time and educational tours motive is to provide the information related to the subjects in multiple ways. In schools the teachers understand the saying that “I hear and I forget, I see and I remember, I do and I understand”. Teachers would like to hone the skills and knowledge of the students and make them ready for the highly competitive world.
Interactive learning, learning with fun, social interaction, new experiences, better exposure, passion towards travel, cultural understandings, independent and better academic performance are some of the advantages drawn out of the educational tours. Let me discuss some valuable points about why schools offer educational tours?
Field trips are interactive and it correlates the book knowledge and real knowledge. The formal environment and informal environment both are equally important to learn intensively. The science center or historical museum along with the subject teachers are really valuable as they provide more details about the subject as like tourist guide.
The educational tours are like motivators to restart the day for the students. The energy gained from the educational tours help the students to focus back in studies with full interest. Learning is a stressful process and getting along with it is difficult for students to have a balanced life. The balance between stress and learning are very important to excel in professional life after the studies. So, the students understand stress management through the break time.
Extracurricular activities and speaking skills are essential to cope up with a challenging environment in the society. The different places and different personalities teach them about how to behave in public places. The social awareness and the teamwork are some of the qualities which are highly demanded incorporates now. The educational tours help to learn from strangers and know about how to communicate in an informal environment.
Passion towards travel
Students get the opportunity to study abroad after their education and exposure to different places are very important in the career. The knowledge of different history and different cultures play a great role in understanding people around them.
Understanding different cultures enhance the knowledge of the traditional beliefs and traditional dressing style. Culture puts light on the different lifestyle and the different dressing types. Thus Educational tour plays a great role in cultivating the positive attitude towards the students.
Students learn to do small tasks assigned to them while going for the educational tour and this educates them to be independent. Students come out of the comfort zone and understand the practical difficulties in completing the different tasks.
