Photography in Outdoor Education.
O'Connell, Cornelius; And Others
The use of photography to add a new dimension to outdoor education activities is described in this paper. It is noted that photography can be an aid to outdoor education in a number of ways: students learn to communicate ideas visually, students learn to think through problems and find ways of solving them, students gain increased appreciation of photographic arts, photographic activities provide opportunities for students to work together in meaningful ways and to practice basic skills, and students can produce materials for display. Some of the uses of photography in learning activities are to bring distant objects closer, to record information for use in reports, and to provide an art medium to express an individual's feeling about his natural surroundings. Also included in this paper are descriptions of 10 activities involving photography which can be used in an outdoor education program. (PS)
