With the rise of standardized testing in schools and the emphasis placed on improved test scores, the time and money for enrichment activities, such as field trips to museums, plummet. Are educational field trips being replaced with “reward” field trips? Both students and teachers report that field trips should be educational and fun, but what are they really getting out of these visits?
Please join us on Wednesday, February 5th at 2:00 pm EST for a webinar with three researchers sharing their findings on the value of field trips for student success and inter-personal growth, and teachers’ needs to ensure a successful visit to the museum.
