Learning Outside the School Classroom Setting: The Case of the Physical Education
Keywords:Education, Teaching, Outdoor Learning, Learning Process
Outdoor learning, such as the one taking place within the school module of the Physical Education, is an educational process that occurs through activities in the external environment, outside the traditional classroom setting and appears to have aroused intense research interest lately. A characteristic feature of external learning is the educational activity that takes place in the external environment and is therefore referred to as a method of acquiring education through experience(experiential learning), and as a method of learning through relationships and interactions with other people. This paper deals with both aspects and aims at analyzing thoroughly all the dimensions and parameters that play a decisive role in the success of such an educational.
