Outdoor learning for children is good or bad?

outdoor learning
 
Childhoods were dramatically changing, with feweropportunities to spend time outdoors, researchersobserved. The loss of exposure to the naturalenvironment would have negative long-termconsequences, they warned.
 
Establishing an "outdoor learning hub" would helpteachers, and help shape policies and strategy, theysuggested.

The report highlighted previous studies that showed that busier family lives, combined with anincreased sense of fear in society, children were having fewer opportunities to explore theirsurrounding natural environment.
 
This was hampering children's social skills as well as risking stifling their long-term physical,emotional development and wellbeing. Therefore, it was important that schools did notoverlook the opportunities that outdoor learning provided to bridge this gap.

At the moment, if outdoor learning is part of a school's curriculum in England, it is largelybecause the teachers recognise the value of it, said report co-author, Sue Waite, a reader inoutdoor learning at Plymouth University, UK. With so much focus on academic attainment,there can be pressure on teachers to stay in the classroom which means children are missingout on so many experiences that will benefit them through their lives.

The report made a number of recommendations, including the establishment of a "strategicpolicy/research hub" to "collate existing research, prioritise future research needs and helpimprove the alignment between research and policy".
 
Ms Waite's fellow co-author Prof Karen Malone, from Western Sydney University, added: "Thisreport maps the evidence to encourage researchers and policymakers to meet at the interfaceof research and policy in order to shape a positive future for our children."
