Researchers “Dig” Into Hands-On-Learning
Research has illustrated in many studies that Hands-On-Learning improves student’s academics and attitudes. This approach encourages students to participate fully in their education.
Most HOL (Hands-On-Learning) is easy to do with a
since science is a process and if students are not engaged in the process, then
they are not doing science. Many studies have observed the value of HOL.
Students are motivated, they enjoy learning and other subjects are improved.
At our school we use HOL inside our classrooms for science. We also have a courtyard that gets use from students here at SRS. The main purpose of our research is to see how our school community feels about utilizing the courtyard. In our conclusion, not only do students enjoy being outdoors, they enjoy learning too.
