Outdoor Learning - Talking beyond classrooms

13th August 2010 at 01:00
The Scottish Government has made it clear that it believes learning need not take place solely inside buildings and that the outdoor environment has massive potential.

The Playing Outside conference at Balbirnie House Hotel in Fife next month, organised by Children in Europe and supported by Fife Council, focuses on this issue.

Speakers include Adam Ingram, minister for children and early years; Kenneth Greer, executive director of education, Fife Council; and experts from abroad, including Claus Jensen, of the Danish Association of Pedagogues, who will talk about northern and southern European perspectives on playing outside, and Anna Pelloni, pedagogical co- ordinator for the Comune di Pavullo in Italy, who will focus on outdoor play for small children in rural areas and supporting family play.
