NAFSO (2001): Raising Achievement through the Environment

Raising Achievement through the Environment: The Case for Field Work and Field Centres.

This paper presents the results of research, which shows that work in field centres has the capacity to allow pupils to operate at levels of learning higher than those attainable within the classroom alone, thus significantly enhancing achievement.

In-depth analysis of the data and interviews suggested that fieldwork improves memory (“it puts pictures into your mind”), improves understanding, improves depth of meaning, improves awareness of personal growth, and improves motivation to learn.
