The New Paideia.
To travel is one of the greatest ways to learn about the world. It is the "getting there" that provides the learning experience, not so much as the destination itself. Education is also a journey, one that should last a lifetime, but for many students today, it is one that lasts only as long as they are in the classroom. In such short trips, many students do not see themselves going anywhere. The new paideia offers a means to allow students to once again find their way. Blending the successful elements of active learning and constructivism, the new paideia uses communication, empathy and community to overcome the issues that currently plague the educational system. Online and offline, the new paideia may be the solution to the problem of what is missing in education today. It brings to the classroom a learner community that uses leisure and technology to integrate course material into the lives of students. (Contains 19 references.) (Author/AEF)
