The Use of Experiential Education and Field Trips for Learning
Gillett, Jason
Journal of Educational Multimedia and Hypermedia, v20 n2 p173-177 Jun 2011
The purpose of my action research is to create meaningful virtual field trips that give students many of the same benefits as actual field trips. Since educational budget cuts are preventing students from participating in real field trips there needs to be an alternative way to deliver that content. I hope to demonstrate how I am improving my practice as well as how I can contribute to the body of literature by researching and creating virtual field trips that help make up for the atrocious lack of actual field trips for students to experience. It's my hope that these virtual field trips will overcome the obstacles that teachers and student find blocking their access to benefits of actual field trips.
