Critical and Creative Thinking
Outdoor learning can develop students’ ability to think logically, critically and creatively in response to a range of issues, ideas and challenges in relation to nature. Students can learn how to critically evaluate evidence related to the outdoors and creatively generate and explore original alternatives and possibilities. In Outdoor learning, students’ critical and creative thinking skills can be developed through learning experiences that encourage them to pose questions and seek solutions to issues by designing appropriate strategies to promote and advocate. Students also use critical thinking to challenge societal factors that negatively influence their own and others’ participation in the outdoors.
