Field Trips of the Future: Inspiring student success through real world experiences
Can you imagine a world where your teenagers and children actually see how the curriculum applies to the real world? A non-profit called E2 Adventures has been live-streaming field trips for students since March 2020. These educational experiences allow students to explore active construction sites, video game design studios, vaccine manufacturers and more, in real-time.
Students interact with experts live streaming from their companies, and teachers connect the real-world experience with what is being taught in class: in mathematics, science & technology, social studies, and language arts. This unique format allows students to see how what they are learning in school is actually used to make a meaningful difference in the world.
Buckle up, because it’s time for the EMSB to “take chances, make mistakes, and get messy!” — Ms Frizzle
