According to the Voice of Student & Youth Travel, an organization that advocates for safe and professional student travel and their Student and Youth Travel Digest Study, teachers support student travel because it not only increases cultural awareness, but it impacts students’ personal development and positively effects education and career development.
From a teacher’s perspective, organized student travel is seen as being an extremely effective resource in comparison to computer-based learning.
Traveling can positively impact students by increasing their willingness to know, learn and explore by 60% in addition to increased levels of adaptability by 49% and increased levels of tolerance by 48%. But the most important effect of student group travel is the desire to travel more after taking just one trip.
Traveling helps children to become more independent and confident. Traveling teaches kids that the learning can be done anywhere and not only found inside a classroom and makes them better students in any kind of environment.
