“Learning is not the product of teaching. Learning is the product of the activity of learners.”

– John Holt

A learning journey is an opportunity for young people to experience the world outside of their day to day. What separates a learning journey from a field trip or and independent experience are the Common Core based questions created to compliment the outing and increase engagement. A learning journey is memorable and impactful to the thinking and processing of a young person. It is an experience they will recall in the future. It is essential that young people have these formative experiences so they are equipped to be in different spaces and to analyze what is going on around them as the grow and flourish. The same day to day classroom experience cannot inspire this level of insight. It’s time to take our young people outside.
