“I strongly believe we are all born with extraordinary natural talents, but the longer we spend in this world, the more we lose touch with them. It is ironic that one of the main reasons that this happens is education. As a result, too many people do not discover their own personal talents and are not actually aware of what they are capable of achieving.”

 

In the above quotation from Ken Robinson’s book The Element, we see a synthesized form of one of the main problems of contemporary education. Unfortunately this education unifies people, creating very strong stereotypes, which we then do not manage to shake off for the rest of our lives.

 

Experiential learning, also known as learning through co-experience or learning by doing, introduces a different concept of education. In and of itself, it actually consists of the acquisition of new knowledge and skills on the basis of newly-gained experience, experimentation and the development of both teamwork abilities and the individual qualities of every person.

 

Based on our many years of experience in this field, we – the Nomadia team – are certain that, with the help of the experiential learning methodology, your children will develop, rather than lose, their most valuable qualities, experience unforgettable moments with their friends, acquire a lot of new knowledge and skills, and discover the most cherished values of human society.

 

Learning about the world and our environment is an important part of children’s education. Nature gives children an opportunity to gain experience by performing activities that are rich in sensations and experiences and easily engage their inherent curiosity and imagination.

 

Experiential learning is suitable for virtually all age groups – from nursery-age kids to 99-year-olds. This new methodology is highly applicable to teenagers and 12-13-year-olds, for whom teamwork is truly a difficult challenge.
