In key with this the Learning by Doing project will take things out of the classroom and place them in a real-life context so that students can acquire knowledge that they are being taught in the school in a way that is more interesting through hands-on learning.

Specific Objectives

Children's Race
  • Make the teachers' job easier, more enjoyable, and rewarding through the introduction of new pedagogical approaches that transfer in/non-formal learning into the school environment.

  • Bring more innovation into school education by creating model schools for experimentation.

  • Transform school education for students ages 15 to 18 (and other age groups through transfer) into a more interesting and engaging experience through hands-on learning. This will help them acquire critical thinking, learning skills, and civic competences for life through the application of experiential learning methodologies.

  • Increase inclusivity in school education, especially for students with learning challenges and those at risk of early school leaving.


Experiential Learning in Formal Education: A Theoretical and Methodological Framework

Our methodological framework is informed by the latest advancements in experiential learning theory, particularly the Experiential Learning Cycle. It encompasses cutting-edge trends in experiential learning, offering a diverse range of practical activities and techniques. This framework serves as a guide for educational program and curriculum designers, enabling them to create formal education programs that are in harmony with the principles of experiential learning.

Multiplier Event: Living with Nature

7 December 2023, Mittelschule Absberggasse, Vienna

🎉✨ Recap of Our Exhilarating Multiplier Event at Mittelschule Absberggasse! ✨🎉 We had a phenomenal gathering on December 7th at the Mittelschule Absberggasse in Vienna, Austria, for our Multiplier Event within the "Experiential Learning: Learning By Doing" project, co-funded by the Erasmus+ KA220 School program. AS IEC, we hosted a dedicated session aimed at disseminating the successful outcomes of our project. A room filled with eager teachers, visionary school principals, and bright students learned about our strides in reshaping education. 🏫💡 But that's not all... Maya, the inspiring global ambassador from Global Ecovillage Network, led an extraordinary experiential workshop themed 'Living in Nature.' It was an eye-opening experience for our pupils, demonstrating the endless possibilities of hands-on learning. 🌱🌳 @empowerwithnature The response was astounding! The students actively participated and are already wondering if we could have these workshops weekly. Imagine that enthusiasm! This event stands as an exceptional example of how experiential learning can transform our educational landscape, one workshop at a time. 🚀 Let's keep the momentum going - for a future where learning is not just within four walls, but an adventure that extends beyond, into the heart of nature and community! 🌍🤝 #LearningByDoing #ErasmusPlus #ExperientialLearning #EducationInnovation #FutureOfLearning
