Technology for teaching and learning outside

    Abstract

    Extract: There are many reasons for teaching outside. For example, fresh air and sunshine have proven health benefits. Outdoor learning spaces tend to be natural and can be aesthetically pleasing in that there are numerous shades and varieties of colours and textures. Outdoor spaces and places are usually larger and less confining. Students can move between solo, small and large group work without the indoor restraints of heavy, fixed furnishings and view-blocking walls and pillars. Why study inside a confining room when the green grass, blue skies and fresh air beckon?
