What's In It For The Students?
Educational Travel, what's in it for the students?
Well, just about every aspect of student travel is advantageous to a student seeking to enhance their school experiences. I speak to many teachers and parents that travel with us and they love everything about it. Most teachers say they don't want to do a tour, they want to do a program. Some request an engaging environment for students or a place where both parents and students have experience a hands-on approach to learning. As a previous educator myself, I've found that learning in a classroom is just not enough. If you create a social and interactive environment you are setting yourself up for a successful learning program for your students.
Welcome to Educational Discovery Tours' blog. We hope to bring value to you and your students by openly discussing topics about education, student travel, frequently asked questions and other related topics. We encourage you to participate in our conversations and contributing to our comments from us and other contributors.
1/15/2009 - Students & Grad Nite Celebrations
We're approaching the 2010 Grad Nite deadline. Most High Schools plan way in advance, but some schools procrastinate until the last minute. This can be an issue when you're planning your trip to Disneyland, Disneyworld, Magic Mountain or another themepark. Educational Discovery Tours encourages schools to book in advance to have priority over other schools. You'd be surprised how many students pack into one themepark. We recently visited Disney as part of our annual quality assurance and found out that Disneyand isn't just for little kids, it's for everyone! The park was packed with thousands of people rushing and hurring to wait in line. It was surprising considering all of the "hoopla" of a so-called "bad economy". This excited us to continue to offer our disney program to schools across the country.
2/1/2010 - No need to worry about park closures
Many have heard that California State parks have shutdown for monetary and funding issues. Some are unaware that these closures do not affect Educational Discovery Tours' program. Because of our volume and our urgency to plan ahead, we are able to secure a spot for elementary schools wishing to take care of our unique and exclusive California History Program.
