The Benefits of Learning through Educational Trips





When staying within the confines of the classrooms and school grounds, monotony is bound to seep in through the crevices. Educational trips are one of the best ways to break through that monotony and bring in a welcoming change to the daily routine. The fun and excitement that the students feel are evident at how their face lights up at the mere mention of educational trips. In fact, the benefits of such excursions extend way beyond the enthusiasm of going beyond the usual routine.

We, at Gurukul The School, believe that when in classrooms, students surely learn new ideas, new things, and new concepts each day, but it is actually outside the classroom where children get to truly explore and earn new experiences. As the Chinese philosopher and teacher, Confucius had famously said âI hear and I forget. I see and I remember. I do and I understand.â The idea of educational trips is based on the concept of experiential learning, and hereâs how we believe such excursions can be beneficial to the overall growth of young minds.

An Effective Tool for Learning

We believe that there can be no better tool for learning than the practical implementation of knowledge. While learning in the classroom gives children the opportunity to apply their lessons on hypothetical situations, an educational trip makes them understand real-life issues. Coming up with the solutions to those problems is what enables their transformation into innovative and independent thinkers. When learning comes with enjoyment, excitement, and fun, it no longer feels like a boring compulsion, and rather becomes an organic process that the students embrace wholeheartedly.

An Opportunity to Exchange Ideas

An educational trip provides an informal yet ideal setting for lively and interesting discussions, and such group discussions have long been recognized as one of the most effective tools of learning. The students get to engage in discussions with not only their teachers and classmates but also with many new faces, which makes learning a wonderfully productive experience for them. An interesting outcome of this is that it further strengthens the bond between the teachers and the students, and also among the students.

Strengthens the Prospects of Personal Development

The excursions take the children away from the comfort of familiarity that they experience within the boundaries of their home, their known routes, and their school grounds. This is an experience that fosters independence, communication skills, and leadership skills. Students learn how to break language barriers and communicate across all boundaries. The exchange of cultural values lets them develop into more considerate personalities. Traveling to new and unfamiliar places not just makes them independent individuals, but also helps to instill in their lifelong priorities and values, which turns them into resolute and self-sufficient individuals.

Imparts Students with a Global Perspective

An educational trip is not just about going to new places for a fun getaway. Rather it is more about providing the kids with an opportunity to explore new cultures and environments. One of the crucial benefits of educational trips is that it develops in young minds an awareness and understanding of different social issues affecting our world. As the students get to understand the issues closely, they become more respectful and empathetic towards other cultures, as well as their surroundings. It empowers them with an enhanced and new perspective to look at things and develops them into more accommodating personas that are well-aware of the issues affecting the world we live in.

Our idea of sending our students on educational trips centers on the belief that it will help them to gain a better understanding of all the concepts and world issues that they learn only theoretically in the classrooms. We, at Gurukul The School, a top ranking school in Ghaziabad, with the meticulously and carefully planned trips by our team of experts and teachers, have been successfully garnering inquisitiveness and eagerness among our children to learn more. Educational trips have been proven to expand the scope of academic growth in children, and we, at Gurukul, know how to utilize the same in the best way possible.

Children and Learning Styles
How to teach and how to learn has been two of the most common questions in the minds of the educators and children since the longest time. We have seen, right from the time when we were children, that every teacher has his or her distinctive way of teaching the class.

How to Support Intellectual Development of Kids
Intellectual development is characterized by the way a child acquires knowledge, learns, and interacts with his/her surroundings.

Thus, we, at Gurukul Crossings, believe that it is of utmost importance to know and understand the various approaches that can be...

Kids should be Encouraged to Face the Fears
Being shy and introvert is not necessarily a negative trait to have as a child. In fact, according to child psychologists, children who are quiet and shy are often more empathic, sensitive, and caring. We have got countless famous innovators and leaders who have been self-confessed introverts, such as, J.K. Rowling, Albert Einstein, and Bill Gates, to name a few. However, being shy and introvert did not stop them from aiming at the stars and being the go-getters that they are. One of the...
