Benefits of Outdoor Education in International Schools - RBIA

by Redbridge Academy International Schools in Bangalore

Education is all about the complete development of an individual. Therefore, there needs to be a balance between active engagements both indoors and outdoors to develop the mind, body, as well as soul. Most of the International schools in Bangalore are focusing on both indoor and outdoor activities because the city life increases the sedentary lifestyle in children.

A few other Benefits of Outdoor Education are:

Better Health:

Every part of our body needs to be energized and outdoor activities definitely cater to that, thus leading to better health of learners. Researchers have revealed that outdoor education can be a key factor in avoiding childhood obesity. It helps learners be in natural surroundings that develop their senses and leads to physical and mental growth.

Increased Motivation:

Monitored amount of physical activities outdoors freshens the mind and body. After that, children are happy, motivated and relaxed to do activities indoors. They can concentrate better on the task at hand as play stimulates the neural connections in the brain and helps in regulating emotions, making plans and solving problems.

Enhanced Communication Skills:

Outdoor education builds collaboration and team building tasks. Children learn to communicate with each other, problem solve and build healthy relationships. It gives them the space to explore, brainstorm, discover, and study, thus reduce barriers to communication.

Improved Memory and Imagination:

Spending time in a controlled environment or lighting throughout the day create a fixed pattern, however, moving outdoors for some time opens up a world of fresh stimuli, resulting in making better relations to learning and improve the power of recall and retention.

Better Overall Behavior And Reduced Stress Levels:

Children are growing, changing and evolving, day by day having to deal with many things at a time. Outdoor education allows them to build essential life skills and better coping mechanisms. For example, while playing a sport/game, failure/ inability to do a task well teaches one to know the cause for the same and helps one stand up on the feet to try again.
